Take ‘Em Down? Confederate Monument Controversy

Messages are appearing on monuments across New Orleans asking for the city to act and take them down. This past June the words appeared “Take Down White Power” and “Take 'Em Down”  on multiple Confederate monuments in New Orleans. Among those monuments tagged included P.G.T. Beauregard, Father Abram J. Ryan and Battle of Liberty Place.
