Richmond, VA _ The City of Richmond Thursday removed the Maury Statue on Monument Avenue at Belmont, along with two cannons on Monument avenue, one just west of the Arthur Ashe Monument, and the other east of the Jefferson Davis statue.
Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney said the statue and cannons were among eleven the city would be removing in the coming days, following Wednesday's removal of the Stonewall Jackson statue, but it would wait until after the July 4th holiday.
Maury was a confederate navy officer during the Civil War and known as the "Pathfinder of the Seas", which is the name of the monument, the pedestal of which also contains a globe with various figures around it, which will require heavier equipment to remove.
Stoney says the statues will be placed in temporary storage while the city solicits public input on what should be done with them.

This is a silly country sometimes.
Now all they need to do is Photoshop out all the Democrat KKK like Stalin loved to do.
Had the CSA won the Civil War, would there be statues of Lincoln, Grant, Sherman and McClellan in Richmond?
It never occurs to a leftist to build.
Leftists, and Democrats, destroy.
They MUST destroy, so no vestige of happiness or beauty remains -
so all faith and hope is directed toward a benevolent government.
Destroy, destroy, destroy until all thaat is left are miserable souls
clamoring to trade votes, violence, anything for a handout.
This was my Virginia - and in a matter of months under the Democrats it is gone.
What a dumb a$$ comment. If the CSA won the war there would be two totally independent nations, the CSA and the USA. Get it? How stupid are you? Do you know any US history?
What about Washington’s statue in the town square... the one with 4 standing figures around it? Or are they just removing confederate ones?
Exactly. We are one nation.
Oh, but they’ll probably leave this one, based on fiction:
brilliant analogy... NO,there would be statues of them in the North as they fought for the North. There are no statues of Lee, Jackson etc in Boston as far as I know.
That's a joke if the South gained their independence from this the hell hole union we are all trapped in now maybe we could keep our God given rights. Are you proud of the USA?
Are you proud of the USA?
If they pay me, I will take them. I Ill use the cannons to protect the statues. Duh.
Doubtful, but then had the CSA won, Washington DC would have still had all of its statues. The CSA for all of its warts, was not interested in ruling the United States. Not sure if a defeated Union would have honored its defeated generals.
My God, you all are just plain stupid. The CSA was not going to conquer the North. That was never the CSA's intention to do so. They wanted independence. A southern victory would mean a totally independent nation with statues of their war heroes and it would be about the same statue wise as it is now. Free Republic is losing IQ points daily. You two posters prove it.
i do wish I could buy a ban ticket. Viking lightning will strike soon in your future. Dumba$$
