Shenandoah Valley acquires a new statue
A Confederate soldier statue, cannons and cannonballs are being relocated to a battlefield in the Shenandoah Valley.
State law requires that the board offer the statue for placement in a museum, historical society, government or battlefield, but the board ultimately has “sole authority” to decide where the items go.
The foundation was one of 10 applicants to receive the statue and its accessories.
Albemarle County will livestream today’s (Saturday’s) removal on its Facebook page in lieu of in-person observance because of the coronavirus pandemic.
