Confederate Statues in the US Capitol

Statues are seen in Statuary Hall, including members of the Confederacy such as Uriah Milton Rose, Jefferson Davis, and Joseph Wheeler, in U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, July 23, 2020. The House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to remove statues of Confederate from the U.S. Capitol as part of an effort to remove symbols of racism. Photo by Sarah Silbiger/UPI
