White nationalist figurehead Richard Spencer led a crowd of three-dozen supporters to the statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday night, local NBC reporter Matt Telham reported on Twitter.

Police stood by as Spencer and his ilk chanted, “We will be back!” They soon vacated the park, Telham tweeted.

Afterwards, Spencer took to Twitter to call the rally a “success,” and say that the alt-right was “badly mistreated” in August.

Watch footage of the rally below.
