LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Hot Springs police say they're preparing for a planned rally to support the preservation of Confederate history in the city about 46 miles (74 kilometers) southwest of Little Rock.

The Hot Springs Sentinel-Record reports The Confederate Square Group is holding the rally Saturday on Arlington Lawn in Hot Springs National Park. This is the fourth rally of its kind on Arlington Lawn this year, but the first since a white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, over plans to remove a Confederate statue erupted into deadly violence.

Cpl. Kirk Zaner says police are working with the National Park Service, Garland County Sheriff's Office and Arkansas State Police to prepare for the event.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party of Garland County says it's canceled a "No Home for Hate" event out of concern for people's safety.
