Confederate memorial at Arlington National Cemetery comes down after judge lifts stay

ARLINGTON, Va. — A statue memorializing the Confederacy at Arlington National Cemetery came down on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after a federal judge cleared the way for its removal.


U.S. District Judge Rossie Alston’s ruling reversed his own decision on Monday to issue a temporary injunction barring the memorial’s dismantling. According to The Associated Press, Alston had halted the removal based on a phone call from supporters of the monument, who claimed that contractors were desecrating the graves surrounding the memorial.
