WEB Notes: More of this nations history is being removed. This is a part of our nations history which has not been a problem since 1895, but now it is. Just like Jackson being removed from the $20. Maybe they will update Mount Rushmore too, because some of those leaders may offend someone.
A Confederate monument will be removed from a spot near the University of Louisville campus where it has stood since 1895.
The stone monument honoring Kentuckians who died for the Confederacy in the Civil War will be moved to another location, University President James Ramsey and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said during a surprise announcement Friday. The monument is capped with a statue of a Confederate soldier.
“It’s time for us to move this monument to a more appropriate place,” Ramsey said while standing in front of the stone memorial, which sits next to the university’s gleaming Speed Art museum that just completed a $60 million renovation.
