A work crew began to dismantle a Confederate monument in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday, the mayor said, in the latest move to take down or relocate symbols of the slaveholding Southern Confederacy from the American Civil War.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer in a pair of messages on Twitter showed photos of figures that had been removed from the monument.
The Washington National Cathedral said this year it was removing Confederate battle flags from two stained glass windows honoring Confederate Generals Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee.
Last year, the Confederate flag was removed from the grounds of the South Carolina state capitol, which was one of the most prominent placements for the flag, following the massacre of nine black churchgoers in Charleston. The man charged with the murders was seen in photographs posing with the battle flag carried by Confederate soldiers.

History is easier to deny if the physical evidence is gone.

If you minimalize or bury history you condemn your self to repeat it.

If you minimalize or bury history you condemn your self to repeat it. History is history, it's not always pleasant. But it is important. Making a few progressives feel good isn't.
