Again, crews find apparent time capsule at Lee statue site
December 26, 2021
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Crews wrapping up the removal of a giant pedestal that once held a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Richmond found what appeared to be a second and long-sought-after time capsule, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said Monday.
The governor tweeted photos of a box being removed from the site and said conservators were studying the artifact.
"They found it! This is likely the time capsule everyone was looking for," he tweeted.
The box was expected to be opened Tuesday afternoon. It wasn't immediately clear what kind of condition any contents might be in.
