Today marks another MONUMENT-al defeat for the "Lost Cause of the Confederacy" in a place that soon won't be known as "Lee Circle." #takeemdownnola

Person in the crowd asked about an hour ago if he'd have time to go get HIS PLANE before statue comes down. There's our answer.... @WWLTV https://t.co/evi4QRfbVc

Patriotism. #nola #nofilter #boybye
So here's a thing that's happening.
NEW ORLEANS...
132 years into the future.
Mortal men & women will argue, clash, and fight over manmade fields of stone and steel.
Government will endorse chaos for its own political gain.
Nothing will be solved.
back in NOLA for the removal of the last Confederate monument, General Robert E. Lee. #cbsnews #ontheroad
General Lee is fitted with a custom noose. Still a little time before he falls. #LeesLastStand #TakeEmDownNOLA @takeemdownnola #NOLAlife
Historic day for NOLA 🎉🎉

Bye, Fel-LEE-cia! #TakeEmDownNOLA
What an emotional experience. One day, I will be very proud to be able to tell Odyn that I witnessed this in person and stood on the right side of history. If you haven't listened to Mitch's speech afterwards, it is well worth listening to. Historically, when civilizations tear down walls and idols true progression begins to happen. This is New Orleans. ✊🏿✊🏼✊🏻✊🏾✊🏿✊🏼✊🏻✊🏾✊🏿✊🏻✊🏼✊🏾

Robyn and I had to take care of immigration paperwork in New Orleans and got to watch this on the way back to our car.
Lee still stands amid rumors of a problem with the equipment. In the meantime, a brass band plays in the parking lot just off Lee Circle. https://t.co/iNDQnNbcEG
