Officials in Charlottesville have vowed a massive police presence – with some 1,000 personnel assigned – to deter any violence.

The "Unite the Right" rally last August, called to protest the removal of a Confederate statue, turned the picturesque Virginia college town into a chaotic scene of street brawls, and one woman was killed when an Ohio man rammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters.
