New Orleans To Remove Four Confederate Monuments
Earlier today the New Orleans city council voted 6 to 1 to remove four Confederate monuments. The vote was preceded by a lengthy and heated public forum that you can see here. I decided early this morning to write up some thoughts assuming that the vote would go the way it did. You can read my essay at the Atlantic.
Regardless of your position, a good case can be made that this decision is the final act of our Civil War sesquicentennial.
