It's Official: Four Confederate Monuments Are Coming Down

New, 13 comments

After a completely bonkers meeting that included impassioned speeches, heckling, and at least one forcible removal, City Council voted 6-1 to remove four Confederate monuments around New Orleans.

The Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, P.G.T. Beauregard and Battle of Liberty Place monuments will be removed.

Councilwoman Stacy Head was the one dissenter, and currently Twitter is having a lot of fun with that.
