Second time capsule found beneath pedestal of Robert E. Lee statue

A second time capsule was recovered at the former site of the Robert E. Lee statue in

Richmond, Virginia, this time from beneath the statue's pedestal. This time capsule, a 36-pound copper box, appears to be the real deal after historians found a separate container in the pedestal that did not match the 1887 time capsule they had expected. The capsule was taken to the conservation lab at the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.
