This chapter talks about University of Virginia (UVA) president Teresa Sullivan, who sent an e-mail to the university board that appeared to make light of the alt-right's intentions. It mentions how Sullivan states that participants of the rally only intend to see Thomas Jefferson's architecture and the lawn. It also talks about the organizers of the Unite the Right rally, such as Chris Cantwell, that focused on a local Walmart as an initial staging area. The chapter discusses Jalane D. Schmidt, an associate professor of religious studies that read online chatter regarding the plan for the evening torch march. It analyzes how the university's decision not to sound any emergency alert to the UVA community regarding the Unite the Right group's torch march was criticized.

Keywords:   Teresa Sullivan, Thomas Jefferson, Unite the Right rally, Chris Cantwell, Jalane D. Schmidt, Unite the Right group, University of Virginia, UVA president
