Debate in N.C. Over Confederate Monuments-- Part 2: UNC's "Silent Sam"

The statue referred to as "Silent Sam" at UNC-Chapel Hill was also spray-painted.

There is now discussion on campus of its removal.  The statue of a Confederate soldier is dedicated to the 321 alumni who died fighting for the Confederacy commissioned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

Written on it were "Murderer," "KKK," and "Black Lives Matter."

It has been repeatedly vandalized over the years.
