Tuesday, September 26, Albemarle high students were learning about the statues of Robert E. Lee in Emancipation Park and the “Stonewall” Jackson in Justice Park.
The public school received $20,000 to help fund this project. 80 juniors from all three public schools were looking at the history of Charlottesville and the statues and what they mean.
