In downtown Richmond, tucked amidst the sprawling VCU hospital, is a mansion built in the early 1800’s. The building was once the White House of the Confederacy. 

Today it’s a museum, and a new exhibit in the space explores The Lost Cause.

An army of Confederate monuments dots Virginia's landscape but some of those statues could soon start coming down after Election Day gave Democrats control of the General Assembly for the first time in decades.


A professor of history at the University of Virginia and a journalist who wrote for Charlottesville’s weekly newspaper are breathing easier today after a judge threw out a lawsuit against them.

A statue modeled after a Confederate monument in Virginia was unveiled in Times Square Friday. It’s the same size and shape as the J.E.B. Stuart Monument in downtown Richmond, but astride the horse is a black man in a hoodie.  


Charlottesville Police are investigating additional damage to confederate monuments there after a spray-painting incident over the weekend.  The attack was apparently carried out with hammers or chisels.
