Lee Statue on Monument Avenue

Richmond VA 23220

Confederate heroes get monumental treatment on this grand Richmond boulevard. Statues honoring J.E.B Stuart, Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Matthew F. Maury — all dedicated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries — represent the "Lost Cause" attitude of many Southerners at the time.
