The question of who owns a certain Confederate monument in downtown Pittsboro, North Carolina, is complicating the Chatham County Board of Commissioners’ attempt to remove the monument, reports the Chatham News + Record. County attorneys with Poyner Spruill reviewed legal documents concerning the monument and reported in a memo that it most likely is owned by the Winnie Davis chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, meaning the county has the right to remove it. North Carolina state law says that objects of remembrance cannot be removed from public property unless they are privately owned.
