Downtown Winston-Salem Confederate Soldiers Monument vandalized

The Confederate Soldiers Monument in downtown Winston-Salem has been vandalized.

The words “Cowards & Traitors” were written in black underneath the inscription on the statue marking the October 1905 date that it was erected.

Investigators are not sure exactly when the monument was vandalized.

In August 2017, someone sprayed black paint on the statue.
