According to The Charlotte Observer, at least a dozen confederate statues have been vandalized all around the South in 2019 alone. 

While Richmond has had its own debates and conflicts over confederate statues, the University of North Carolina's "Silent Sam" statue sparked national outrage, and in the wake of the Charlottesville protests, numerous statues have been taken down all over the country. However, many that remain have been subject to vandalism.

The Observer has compiled a list of some of the cases of vandalism in 2019. Read the list here.
