Shenandoah Valley acquires a new statue

12 September 2020 State News Luray/Page County Shenandoah County Front Royal/Warren County Winchester Frederick County Clarke County News

A Confederate soldier statue, cannons and cannonballs are being relocated to a battlefield in the Shenandoah Valley.

The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to give the items to the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation.

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.
