Confederate monument will be moved to site SCV originally desired but turned down!

Whitehall Memorial Monument

A monument to Confederate soldiers will be moved to an unlikely place -- the grounds of a condominium complex.

The Maury Commons Condominium Association has agreed to have the memorial placed on its property, which was built on an old cemetery.

"It was a place called Potter's Field. It's believed some Confederate soldiers were buried here," condominium association president Al Littek told 630 WMAL News.

Ironically, the condominium location is where the Sons of Confederate Veterans originally wanted the memorial, but the owners at the time refused permission.
