Workers removed the statue from its base this morning.
Virginia's biggest statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee has been removed from its stone base, as of this morning. In December 2020, another Robert E. Lee statue was removed from the U.S. Capitol building.
A symbol of racial injustice, the statue was erected 130 years ago in tribute to the South’s Civil War leader.
