Robert E. Lee Statue, the Last Confederate Icon to be Removed

Workers with Team Henry Enterprises dismantle the statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. The statue, erected in Richmond in 1890, is removed from Monument Avenue nearly a week after the Supreme Court of Virginia cleared the way for the state-owned monument to come down following several legal battles.
