Injunction Issued to Prevent Monument Removal



New Orleans monuments to Confederate heroes and the White League will remain part of the cityscape for a while longer. In the most recent turn of the protracted battle, the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeal forbade removal until a lawsuit is resolved.


Monumental Task: Landrieu, City Council Move Against Confederate Markers


By Lucy Leonard

Mayor Mitch Landrieu traversed City Hall to appear before the Council and formally call for the removal of symbols of the Confederacy on Thursday (7.09). The Mayor singled out four monuments: the Robert E. Lee statue at Lee Circle, the Jefferson Davis statue on Jefferson Davis Parkway, the P.G.T. Beauregard statue on Esplanade Avenue at the entrance to City Park, and the Battle of Liberty Place (a.k.a. the White League) Monument at Iberville Street. The Council subsequently voted 6-0 to begin the process.
