The Appomattox Statue (National Harbor, Virginia)


The Appomattox Statue is a bronze statue commemorating the Confederate dead of Alexandria, Virginia. A lone Confederate soldier stands facing south, towards the main battlefields of the Civil War, with his arms crossed. The figure has been the focal point of controversy throughout its existence and was finally removed on June 2, 2020, in the wake of national protests against the murder of George Floyd.
