Charlottesville Judge Orders the Tarps off Confederate Statues

Associated Press, February 27, 2018

A judge in Virginia has ordered the city of Charlottesville to remove the black shrouds that were installed over two Confederate monuments after a white nationalist rally last summer.

Local news outlets report Charlottesville Circuit Court Judge Richard Moore gave the city 15 days from the time an official order is signed to remove the tarps.

They currently cover statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. {snip}
