A statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was sold online for more than $1.4 million on Wednesday after it was removed from a Dallas park nearly two years ago over concerns the monument was racist.

The bronze statue drew a top offer of $1,435,000 from a bidder identified only as “LawDude,” according to the Lone Star Auctioneers Inc. website. The second highest bidder, “MustangJerry,” maxed out at $1,432,500 after placing 41 bids since the statue first went up for auction with a starting price of $450,000 on May 26.
