Number of years after the end of the Civil War that the University of North Carolina, working with the United Daughters of the Confederacy, erected on the Chapel Hill campus a statue of a Confederate soldier that came to be known as Silent Sam: 48

Cost to construct the bronze statue in 1913: $7,500

Among the statue's donors, rank of Julian Carr, a UNC alumnus, Confederate veteran, and wealthy North Carolina industrialist: 1

Date on which Carr delivered a speech at the monument's dedication in which he said that "100 yards from where we stand, less than 90 days perhaps after my return from Appomattox, I horsewhipped a Negro wench until her skirt hung in shreds, because … she had publicly insulted and maligned a Southern lady": 6/2/1913

Year in which the first known protest against the statue occurred, in the form of a letter to the editor of The Daily Tar Heel student newspaper from student Al Ribak that said the monument's primary purpose "was to associate a fictitious 'honor' with the darkest blot on American history — the fight of southern racists to keep the Negro peoples in a position of debased subservience" and urged its removal: 1965

Date on which Maya Little, a UNC doctoral student of history, splashed a mixture of red paint and her own blood on the statue to, as she said, "provide the context that the chancellor refuses to":  4/30/2018

Date on which a group of protesters toppled Silent Sam, which has been in storage ever since: 8/20/2018

From July 2017 to July 2018, estimated cost to UNC of providing security for the statue: at least $390,000

Year in which the North Carolina legislature, responding to pressure to remove Confederate symbols from public places following the massacre of nine Black members of a historic South Carolina church by a white supremacist who celebrated the Confederate flag, passed a law that protects monuments on public property from removal: 2015

Citing the 2015 law, what UNC's Board of Trustees is proposing to spend to build a new history center to once again house the monument on campus: $5.3 million

Amount it would cost the university to operate the center annually: $800,000

As part of the proposal, additional amount the university would spend annually on a "mobile force platoon" to police student protests: $ 2.2 million

In comparison, percent of the costs of UNC-Chapel Hill’s $9 million Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History that were covered by private donations: 95

Amount UNC spent constructing the Stone Center's building: $0 

Number of UNC teaching assistants and instructors who are withholding grades in protest as long as the university moves forward with plans to restore Silent Sam on campus: at least 79 

Number of grades that are being withheld as a result of the strike: over 2,000

Number of UNC alumni, students, faculty, and staff who have pledged to withhold financial contributions to the university until Silent Sam is permanently removed: over 2,000

Date on which the UNC Board of Governors is scheduled to meet and discuss plans for Silent Sam: 12/14/2018
