The rally took place in response to the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, last week, according to the CBS.
A "Unite the Right" white nationalists' rally that was held to protest authorities' plans to remove a monument of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a Charlottesville park, led to clashes with left-wing counter-protesters and culminated in a car-ramming attack that killed one person and injured 19 others.
