Confederate Monuments Projected to Stay Put in 6 Virginia Counties

WRIC, November 4, 2020

Six counties across the Commonwealth had referendums on their ballot allowing citizens to decide whether or not Confederate monuments would relocated from those areas. Based on the current results not a single one of the monuments in question will be moving any time soon.

The majority of residents in Halifax, Warren, Tazewell and Franklin counties voted no on referendums proposing the relocation of Confederate monuments from the locality. Over half of Charles City County voters chose to not remove two civil war monuments.


All of the statues are located outside of a current or former county courthouse.
