Louisiana Cultural Vistas to hold discussion of Confederate monuments in New Orleans



What to do about New Orleans' Confederate monuments ? if anything ? has been a hot topic around town since the Confederate flag flap in South Carolina and Mayor Mitch Landrieu's call to get four Confederate monuments in New Orleans taken down or moved.

On July 23,*Louisiana Cultural Vistas magazine will host a forum on the subject, focusing on the history of each, as well as the significance of Robert E. Lee, P.G.T. Beauregard and Jefferson Davis to the city of New Orleans directly. According to the magazine, "the conversation is intended to add a historical perspective to the ongoing debate over how the South interprets the memory of the Civil War and Reconstruction."
