A Tuesday court ruling has cleared the way for Richmond, Virginia, to remove its last-standing Confederate statue.

The statue, standing at the intersection of the city’s Hermitage Road and Laburnum Avenue, depicts A.P. Hill, a Confederate general killed during the Third Battle of Petersburg in the American Civil War. The statue was erected on top of the general’s burial site.
Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney celebrated the ruling in a statement shared with CNN.

“We’re gratified by Judge Cheek’s ruling. This is the last stand for the Lost Cause in our city,” said Stoney in the statement.
