America: Huge statue of General Robert E. Lee removed in Richmond, this is the reason

Richmond. A giant statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, which stood for more than a century, has been removed in Virginia’s capital Richmond on Wednesday. After removing the statue, there was a wave of happiness among the people present there. People started dancing and singing. An equestrian statue, one of the largest Confederacy monuments in America, was removed at 9 a.m. local time.

When the workers dropped the statue of his horse tied with a rope, the crowd of hundreds rejoiced. Then the statue was cut into pieces. On this occasion, Governor Ralph Northam said, ‘After a long time, it is happening as a wound healer so that Virginia can grow and become a welcoming state with inclusion and diversity.’

The Democrat said, ‘This is more than 400 years of history that we should not be proud of.’ He congratulated Virginians for their support in removing it. The removal of this statue is a major victory for civil rights activists who have been demanding its removal for a long time.

Robert Edward Lee was an American Confederate general best known as the commander of the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He led the Army of Northern Virginia from 1862 until its surrender in 1865 and earned a reputation as a skilled tactician.

Last week, however, Virginia’s Supreme Court dismissed the lawsuits, clearing the way for the statue’s removal. (with language input)
