Guest editorial: How New Orleans should compromise on the Confederate monuments


The following is a guest editorial by Quin Hillyer in response to the New Orleans City Council's upcoming vote on whether to remove four Confederate monuments on public land.


The Battle of New Orleans Monuments should come to an end through compromise. Mayor Mitch Landrieu should promote the compromise and thus become a uniter and a healer, rather than a divider and bully.

The compromise must include the continuation of Robert E. Lee?s perch above the circle bearing his name, with an appropriately worded new display (more about which later in this column).?
