Some More on the (l)ouisville Confederate Monument's Time Capsule

From the Nov. 22, USA Today.

Along with the cigar smoked by Jefferson Davis, the time capsule included a scarf worn by one of his secretaries, a likeness of General Lee. a Bible, fabrics and Confederate money.

The time capsule was buried six inches below the base of the monument.

Believe it or  not, the financially strapped city spent $400,000 to remove it, though I guess we should be thankful that they didn't just bulldoze it down.

I looked at photos of them taking it down, one of the saddest things I've ever seen.  To think that a city would do something like that to destroy history.

Again, the Shame of louisville.  --Old Secesh
