Hundreds of white supremacists descended upon Charlottesville this weekend for a Unite the Right rally that's meant to protest the city's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park.
The protests turned violent on Saturday as protesters and counter-protesters clashed, leading to local and state emergencies being declared. The rally was ended by police, but it appeared the ralliers continued marching throughout the town.
