A statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee stands in the center of Emancipation Park the day after the Unite the Right rally erupted into violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Charlottesville City Council voted to remove the statue and change the name of the space from Lee Park to Emancipation Park, sparking protests from white nationalists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and members of the 'alt-right'.
