The first of four Confederate monuments was removed overnight in the city of New Orleans. At about 1:30 a.m., with snipers at watch, the Battle of Liberty Place monument was extracted as a part of the city’s effort to memorialize long standing expressions of white supremacy and racism. City officials chose to operate overnight in order to minimize disruption from those who view the removals as a dishonoring of history and views that still support that history. Workers and moving companies wore black and covered company names with black tape, so as not to be identified. New Orleans Mayor, Mitch Landrieu has said, “There’s a better way to use the property these monuments are on and a way that better reflects who we are.”
