RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The spot in Richmond, Virginia, where a towering statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee once stood is now just a pile of rubble. But workers will continue their search for a famed 1887 time capsule that was said to be buried under the massive monument. State conservators pried open a lead box that some had hoped was the time capsule Wednesday. But they didn’t find the expected trove of objects inside. Instead, conservators found a few books, a coin and an envelope. A local historian believes the box was left by someone involved in the monument’s construction.
