Norfolk and Portsmouth city leaders have vowed to move their Confederate monuments out of public view.
Around the country, similar emblems have been coming down, too, in places like Baltimore and Dallas.
But in Virginia Beach? It’s unlikely.
City Attorney Mark Stiles issued an opinion that the Confederate monument built more than a century ago outside of the former Princess Anne County Courthouse can’t be moved.
He relied on a 1904 law that says war memorials in counties can’t be disturbed or interfered with.
