And in New Orleans, hundreds of people gathered to celebrate the removal of a massive bronze statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee on Friday. It was the last of a series of Confederate statues the city has removed in recent weeks. Workers wore bulletproof vests and face coverings to conceal their identities as they used a crane to remove the statue from a 60-foot-high pedestal. White nationalists have staged a series of protests and issued threats in the lead-up to the memorials’ removals. A car belonging to one of the workers had also been set on fire.
