The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 10

A Fort Smith, Arkansas, Wal-Mart refused to sell a $320 high school ring to a woman buying it for her nephew because his high school's mascot is a rebel holding a Confederate flag.

There is some talk about how Black Twitter helped take down the Confederate flag in South Carolina.

New Orleans "grapples" with its Confederate past.  (It sure didn't have much of a long one).  Looking into the possible relocation of four Confederate monuments as "public nuisances."  They are of Lee, Beauregard, Davis and the Battle of Liberty Place, a fight between the "White Legion" and the city's reconstruction government in 1874.  They are also thinking about renaming the Jefferson Davis Parkway.

New Orleans was one of the first Confederate cities to surrender in 1862.  Looks like they're getting ready to do it again.
