Although the Virginia General Assembly passed a bill that would have prevented cities and counties from taking down confederate monuments, Gov. Terry McAuliffe vetoed the measure.  That means localities are free to make their own decisions about war memorials that some find offensive.  So far, at least one letter to the editor of the News-Gazette has addressed the issue but Lexington has not seen the groundswell that some other southern cities have witnessed.
