Our Lost Monuments: A Tale of Desecration The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 463

From Wikipedia.

ROBERT E. LEE MONUMENT

Dedicated in 1884--  Desecrated on May 19, 2017.  Built for $36,000 raised by the Robert E. Lee Monument Association.

Listed on National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1991.  In 2011 the New Orleans magazine said it was one of the city's most important statues.

BEAUREGARD STATUE

Dedicated in 1915.  Desecrated May 16-17, 2017

Listed National Register of Historic Places on Feb. 18, 1999.

DAVIS MONUMENT

Dedicated Feb. 22, 1911.  Desecrated May 11, 2017.

My thought is that the city should reimburse Confederate organizations for the dishonorable thing they did.  Plus, one would think that being on the NRHP would carry some weight.  Obviously not.
