    After nine months of being tasked by the Caddo Commission to come up with a recommendation concerning the Confederate Monument on the Courthouse grounds, the Citizens Advisory Committee has finally delivered.
    The recommendation came after hours of listening to comments from citizens at public meetings and two failed attempts of reaching a decision because of absent members.

confedLouisiana likely to keep more of its Confederate monuments, than discard

The dust has settled in New Orleans, with minor dustups flaring in Shreveport, Alexandria, Lafayette, and Lake Charles. And it seems who’s depicted and how many people live around there matters when it comes to controversy stoked over Confederate monuments.

New Orleans served as ground zero for the displacement of these historical objects, with the dispatching of a pair of items listed on the National Register of Historical Places and a couple of others. Shreveport has seen lengthy discussion of another Register object’s fate, with some decision – even if to punt on the issue – coming soon. Within the past couple of years, calls to remove statuary in Alexandria, Lafayette and Lake Charles went unheeded.
