The most recent news suggests that the American Civil War Center at Tredegar will make a decision about the proposed monument to Jefferson Davis and Jim Limber by the Sons of Confederate Veterans in August. I will keep you up-to-date as best I can, but my guess is that this statue doesn't have a chance. See previous posts, here and here. The SCV's problem is that they are dealing with serious historians who also understand historical memory.
