Confederate Monuments Are Gone In New Orleans

After decades standing sentinel over New Orleans, the Confederate monuments are gone, amid a controversy that at times hearkened back to the divisiveness of the Civil War they commemorated. Late Friday the last of the monuments — a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee facing defiantly north with his arms crossed — was lifted by a crane from its pedestal. As air was seen between Lee's statue and the pedestal below it, a cheer went out from the crowd who recorded the history with their phones.
