Confederate Statue Removed Outside Leesburg Courthouse

(Loudoun County)-  The Confederate statue outside of the Loudoun County courthouse in Leesburg has been removed.  It was removed by the Loudoun County government and the Loudoun Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy on Monday night.  A vote back in early July by the county board of supervisors approved the removal, and it is unclear where it was taken to.  The statue, known as the “Silent Sentinel,” has stood on the property since 1908.
