University of Virginia students call for statue of George Rogers Clark to be removed

Local Virginia activist David Swanson is circulating a petition urging University administration to remove the George Rogers Clark statue from its current location on University property. 

The statue, located by the intersection of West Main Street and Jefferson Park Avenue, depicts George Rogers Clark riding horseback, confronting a Native American chief. A group of Native Americans are depicted kneeling in front of Clark, while soldiers brandish weapons behind him. The statue’s inscription reads “George Rogers Clark: Conqueror of the Northwest.”
