Virginia led the way in Confederate monument removals in 2020

Communities across the U.S. saw at least 168 Confederate monuments, statues and other symbols removed from public spaces last year—71 of them in Virginia, the state with the most removals, according to a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The group says more than 2,100 Confederate symbols are still publicly present in the U.S. and that 704 of them are monuments. The total figure includes government buildings, schools, streets and other public property named after people associated with the Confederacy.
