Those who are nostalgic for Confederate statues will be pleased to know that a Confederate still stands proudly on the courthouse square in Halifax County.
Supposedly this is not the first Civil War statue the county had. The story I always heard was that someone noticed the buttons on the statue that had been there for many years were inscribed “USA”. That Yankee soldier was banished to a local pasture and a true Confederate was installed in his place.
