Charlottesville Judge Rules Lee, Jackson Statues are War Memorials

Via Chickenmom


Two statues of Confederate Army generals are memorials to war veterans, according to a Charlottesville Circuit Court judge.

Judge Richard Moore ruled Monday, April 29, that the statues of General Robert E. Lee and General Thomas Johnathan "Stonewall" Jackson are war memorials. Moore's ruling favors plaintiffs who had filed a lawsuit in February 2017 to stop a decision by then-members of Charlottesville City Council to remove the two statues from Market Street Park and Court Square Park, respectively.
