Confederate statue ‘Fame’ moved to new location in Salisbury

SALISBURY, N.C. — A century-old Confederate statue has been moved to a new, permanent location in Salisbury.

The statue, known as “Fame,” was taken down last year after the police chief said it was a threat to public safety.

City leaders paid more than $89,000 to relocate the statue.
