In a 7-0 opinion, the Supreme Court of Virginia has ruled the monument of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee can be removed from its prominent spot in Richmond. It was placed there in 1890 but times and attitudes have changed. It is the largest Civil War monument in the country. The decision came after two groups filed a lawsuit to block the removal of the monument. More details here at the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
In 2020 the RTD published an article about the state agreeing to a plan to remove Lee’s statue by first cutting it into 3 pieces.
