Charlottesville's Robert E. Lee, 'Stonewall' Jackson Statues Officially Removed


The City of Charlottesville, Virginia, officially removed Saturday morning the statues of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, both of which have been a political flashpoint in the community since the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally that descended into chaos and violence, resulting in the death of 32-year-old protester Heather Heyer.

The removal of the equestrian statues had been halted by litigation and recently-amended state law governing war memorials.
