Workers in Dallas removed a statue of Robert E. Lee from Lee Park on Thursday as police guarded the premises.
City officials said in a statement that an art conservator monitored handling of the statue, which was moved by a large crane.
Melinda Gutierrez, a spokeswoman for Dallas police, said that she had not received reports of any violence during the removal operation, according to Reuters.
The 14-foot-tall statue depicted Robert E. Lee riding a horse with another soldier.
The Dallas City Council voted earlier this month to remove the statue but was met with opposition from a pro-Confederacy group that was seeking court protection to keep the statue in the park.
The removal of the Robert E. Lee statue in Dallas comes a month after a white nationalists protested the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville.
The protest turned deadly after James Alex Fields, 20, plowed his car into a group of counterprotesters, killing one woman and injuring several others.
Baltimore, Charlottesville, and Tampa are among the cities that have removed Confederate statues this year.
