Park officials say the Confederate monuments in Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania are staying put, according to our affiliate WSET.

The national park has not received any complaints about the monuments, park spokesperson Katie Lawhon told USA Today.

"These memorials, erected predominantly in the early and mid-20th century, are an important part of the cultural landscape," Lawhon said in an email to USA Today.

Lawhon told reporters that the park's mission includes interpreting the actions, motivations, and causes of the soldiers.

Gettysburg National Military Park focuses on the Battle of Gettysburg, which was the bloodiest battle during the Civil War.
