CHAPEL HILL, North Carolina – A Civil War memorial statue at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was found vandalized Sunday morning with the words “black lives matter.”
The statue, known as Silent Sam, was erected in 1913 as a monument to 321 alumni who died in the Civil War and students who joined the Confederate Army, according to the university’s website.
Vandals used black spray paint to deface the statue, which also had the words “KKK” and “murderer” written on it. No suspects or arrests have been made.
Last week, a monument in Maplewood Cemetery in Durham honoring local Confederate soldiers was similarly vandalized. More
