(AP) – Crews working to remove the pedestal where a statue of
Gen. Lee towered over Richmond for more than a century believe
they’ve found a time capsule that was buried there in 1887.


The massive bronze equestrian statue of Lee, erected in 1890, was
taken down in September, more than a year after Governor Ralph
Northam ordered its removal after protests over racism and police
brutality erupted across the country following the police killing of

George Floyd in Minneapolis.
