FOX's Tom Graham with the latest:

Another reminder of the old south is no more...

The University of Texas is the latest to remove Confederate era statues including one in the likeness of Robert E. Lee. Some gathering to cheer the effort in the early morning hours in Austin:

(Man) "These reminders of white supremacy do not need the protection and do not need the public space that they have."

Others favoring to keep the four statues, arguing they're reminders of the nation's heritage. In North Carolina, Duke University removed a statue of General Lee last week after it was vandalized.
