A university agrees to take down Confederate flags.

FOX News Radio's Chris Foster reports:

Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, removing Confederate battle flags from its chapel, named after General Robert E Lee.

The Washington is George -- who donated $20,000 to start the school in 1796. Lee's name was added later.

The school's President announced in a letter, the flags would be removed, as demanded by a group of black law students.

The letter also apologizes for the University's ownership of about 80 slaves from 1826 to 1852. Some were used to build a dormitory on campus.
