Wilmington City Council Votes For Permanent Statue Removal

A North Carolina city council that voted more than a year ago to remove two Confederate statues has decided to keep them out of downtown for good. News outlets report the Wilmington City Council made the decision on the two statues Monday. In a July 5 letter to the city, officials say a local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy asserted its right of possession over the statues and their pedestals and requests the city hold them in storage until it can make arrangements to take possession of them.
