Since so many of you responded to our recent call for comments about the Monument Avenue statue removal, we would appreciate your feedback about what, if anything, should be done with the Confederate memorials on public property in the Tri-City area.
To the best of our knowledge, there are four such memorials — statues at the courthouses in Dinwiddie, Chesterfield and Sussex, and the Old Men & Boys marker in Petersburg. We are not including Blandford Cemetery or the battlefield because those are not areas of high traffic visibility, and we are not talking about the Confederate flags flying on private properly.
What do you think should be done about those known Confederate memorials?
Remember that by posting your comments, you agree to allow them to be published in news coverage by The Progress-Index, so please be respectful in what you say. Derogatory, discriminatory or inflammatory comments will be deleted from the page, and the poster subject to being blocked from future posts.
