Charlottesville, VA, home to the University of Virginia which was founded by Thomas Jefferson, will no longer celebrate Jefferson’s birthday each April 13 and will instead celebrate the day Union forces marched into the city in 1865:

From the AP:

The city council voted Monday night to scrap the decades-old April 13 holiday honoring the slave-holding president and Founding Father. Charlottesville will now mark Liberation and Freedom Day on March 3, the day U.S. Army forces arrived in the city in 1865.

“So it’s not just Confederate monuments”?

Trump was right! Again:

Oh, and this was so, so predictable:

And it’s been quite a week for Dems. First the Besty Ross flag and now Thomas Jefferson:
