Title

The Web 1978 "The Social Scene"

Description

In a description of the Richmond social scene, the article says "As the capital of the old confederacy, Richmond has a richness of heritage... The legacy of the War Between the States is an intrinsic part of Richmond. It is manifested in the southern heros statues on Monument [Avenue]... Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis still enjoy the statues of demi-gods in Richmond. They are as much part of Virginia tradition as 'Sic Semper Tyrannis,'" referring to the state motto of Virginia, "thus always to tyrants." The article also mentions how many people don't realize that Lee and Davis were born in the North, and how the UR campus is becoming more geographically diverse, with many students coming from New Jersey.
