o Confederate statues coming down overnight in Lexington, Kentucky where removal work again quietly without advance notice as the sun set. The monuments to Confederate General John Hunt Morgan and John C.Breckenridge, a US Vice President and Confederate Secretary of War will be moved to a cemetary where the men they represent are buried.
City council voting to remove the statues soon after a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia where white nationalists protested the planned removal of a statue of Confederate General, Robert E Lee, when a car plowed into group of counter protestors, killing a 32 year old woman. The Kentucky statues which have been in the city for roughly 130 years will be taken to a private storage facility as the city works on an arrangement with the Lexington cemetery for their final resting place.
The statue of Robert E Lee in Charlottesville's Emancipation Park remains standing.
