    On August 12, 2017, an Alt-Right rally took place in Charlottesville, Virginia. The march was met with counter protesters, which in turn was met with a violent attack from a white supremacist who drove his vehicle into a crowd of people, leaving one woman dead and nineteen others injured. In a related incident, two state troopers were killed in a helicopter accident.
