"2015 law provides path forward on Confederate monuments [Editorial]." The Robesonian [Lumberton, NC]. September 2, 2017.
Recent events have led to discussion concerning whether or not Confederate memorials and monuments should stay standing in North Carolina. A Historical Commission comprised of seventeen people from the Department of Cultural Resources has the veto power to decide whether “removing, relocating, or altering monuments, memorials, plaques and other markers” will be allowed (para. 6). Discussion surrounding Confederate monuments could possibly affect the fate of a Confederate monument in Robeson County’s downtown Lumberton.
