Damaged Confederate statue would be moved inside historic courthouse in latest bid to end stalemate

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A crumpled Confederate statue that was damaged when protesters toppled it would go back on display inside a historic courthouse under the latest proposal by North Carolina officials to deal with monuments increasingly decried by protesters as racist symbols.

A Durham city-county government committee proposed Tuesday to move the statue indoors from the building's grounds and leave unrepaired the damage that includes a crumpled head, bent legs and a twisted rifle. The county Board of Commissioners would have to approve the plan.
