The march came on the night before the Unite the Right rally on Saturday, in which thousands of alt-right activists from the country are expected to gather and attend. The rally is sparked by the citys decision to remove a sculpture of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a public park. Currently, at least one from the rally has been arrested and several were being treated for minor injuries. Aug 13, 2017
