Franklin, Ohio (AP)- Ohio cities have removed confederate markers in the wake of last week's violent protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the planned removal of a statue of General Robert E. Lee.
The Hamilton-Middletown Journal News reports a stone marker in Franklin commemmorating Lee was removed Thursday.
In central Ohio, the city of Worthington said an historic marker outside the former home of a confederate general was removed in anticipation of protests.
