Heather Hayer, died during a peaceful counter-protest when a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of anti-racism protesters
The white supremacist rally formed a torchlit procession through the Virginia town as they protested the renaming of Lee Park to Emancipation Park
The name change from Lee Park was voted in earlier this year in an attempt to tackle the tainted history of the Confederacy who fought to keep slavery in the US civil war.
The park was named after famed general Robert E. Lee whose statue remains standing in the park.
A legal challenge to its removal, supported by far-right activists, has meant a judge will decide on its future.
A decision is expected at the end of the month.
Far-right marchers used their wooden torches to beat counter protesters
They marched on the University of Virginia the night before the Unite the Right rally
Protesters were heard chanting the Nazi slogan ‘blood and soil’ during the event
Other chants included ‘white lives matter’ and ‘Jews will not replace us’
Marchers complained that white history was being erased from America’s identity
The makers of the torches used by the protesters, Tiki Brand, distanced themselves from the rally.
They said in a statement: "TIKI Brand is not associated in any way with the events that took place in Charlottesville and are deeply saddened and disappointed.
"We do not support their message or the use of our products in this way. Our products are designed to enhance backyard gatherings and to help family and friends connect with each other at home in their yard."
