North Carolina monument to white supremacist governor to be taken down, destroyed

A Confederate statue that has sparked contention in Western North Carolina will be destroyed rather than moved to another location or stored in a warehouse.


Asheville city leaders on Tuesday voted 6-1 to remove the Vance Monument, which honors former N.C. Gov. Zebulon Vance, a white supremacist. It has stood since 1897 at a downtown site where slaves may have been sold.
