People tend to a counter-protester lying on the ground after he was hit by a car Saturday in Charlottesville Va
They gathered in Richmond, Virginia to protest at the proposed removal of monuments harking back to the Confederacy - a group which opposed the abolition of slavery and sparked the U.S. civil war.
Demonstrations were held all over California to show solidarity with the victim who was killed after a vehicle plowed into a crowd of protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Part of what made the case become a federal one was that the chief suspect, 20-year-old James Alex Fields, Jr, crossed state lines, travelling from OH to Virginia.
Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosiissued a statement saying, in part, "The vile beliefs of the perpetrators of this violence insult our fundamental American values and must be condemned in the strongest terms".
Virginia state police also said one of their agency's helicopters crashed Saturday outside Charlottesville, killing two troopers.
President Trump responded to the incident with a speech where he placed blame on "many sides" for the violence and bigotry that occurred Saturday in Charlottesville. "Trump's not a white supremacist", said Ms Bloom.
Nineteen people are being treated for serious wounds and five are said to be in a critical condition.
Trump has been criticised for his response to the riot.
