Richmond To Remove Last Confederate Statue On Public Land

  • Richmond this week plans to remove a statue of A.P. Hill – the city’s last Confederate monument standing on public property.
  • The base of the statue contains remains of the general, which has delayed the process to remove the monument.
  • On Thursday, Richmond Circuit Court Judge David Cheek Sr. denied a motion from some Hill descendants seeking to block removal of the monument while the appeal over who gets to keep the monument continues.
  • Hill’s descendants want the statue to go to Cedar Mountain Battlefield, near the cemetery that is expected to be Hill’s final final resting place.
