The Confederate Soldier Memorial at Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery, near Columbus, Ohio

The bronze statue of a rebel soldier was toppled (from its place on the arch) and decapitated on Aug. 22, 2017. The statue’s head was stolen. Two days later, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs contracted with the Westmoreland Protection Agency, based in Sunrise, Florida to provide unarmed security guards at Camp Chase and two other cemeteries — North Alton Confederate Cemetery in Alton, Illinois, and Woodlawn National Cemetery in Elmira, New York. The 30-day contract cost $91,357, according to the documents.
