State Seeks Comments On Confederate Monuments

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — Members of the public may use a new online portal to comment on a proposal to relocate three Confederate monuments from the State Capitol grounds in Raleigh to the Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site in Four Oaks.

The online comment portal is available at https://www.ncdcr.gov/comment-relocation-monuments.

At their Sept. 22, 2017 meeting, the North Carolina Historical Commission voted to postpone any decision regarding the petition from the N.C. Department of Administration to relocate three Confederate monuments from the State Capitol grounds in Raleigh to the Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site until their April 2018 meeting. A subcommittee composed of members of the North Carolina Historical Commission was created to study the issue and seek advice and legal opinions from appropriate entities.

At their first meeting Jan. 22, the committee agreed to solicit public comments via an online form.
