Sad to see that New Orleans would cave in to the wishes of a few to remove the statue of such a famous General. It dishonors the ancestors of many of us who were born and raised in the south! What next, New Orleans? Jackson...More
One of the highlights of our trip, among many, was passing by Lee Circle on the St. Charles Streetcar and seeing the 60-foot-high pedestal missing the 16-foot statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
The monument was dedicated in 1884 to a military leader who...More
I walked to this circle to catch the cable car to the garden district. To be honest I had no idea that General Lee used to stand atop the monument. However after I got on the car I heard a group discussing it. It is...More
Pretty tall, closed as of March 2018, can't go up past the street. The man was fighting to keep slavery so I guess it's for the best. If you think it's about anything but slavery check the articles of secession.
My wife and I have discussed this at length. One person (or a handful) deciding to remove a statue is a shame. If the cities residents voted in majority to remove the statue that is one thing but if the council or mayor decided without...More
History is history- taking down this statue does not change anything
Piut up plaques putting all into historical perspective- common sense
Tearing this down at great cost while half the city streets are a wreck is ridiculous
Hope the citizens of NOLA vote this guy...More
Once again, History Revisionism succeeded in removing a piece of history. The noble General Robert E. Lee was one of the greatest Generals in American History. His military tactics are still taught with reverence and awe, at the United States Military Academy at West Point,...More
On May 18, 2017, the City of New Orleans announced that the statue of General Robert E Lee would be removed at 9 a.m. the following day. The decision was made two years earlier by a vote of the City Council. The statue was erected...More
For some years, I shared a studio, a few blocks above Lee Circle. It was always a highlight of my day, to drive around it, and admire it.
Then, the neighborhood changed, mostly for the better, but the monument seemed to become a home for...More
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
