New Orleans Picayune article on the removal of this Confederate Monument includes a gallery of photographs. “Crews Tuesday evening (May 16) removed the P.G.T. Beauregard statue near the Esplanade Avenue entrance to City Park. It was the third monument removed among four post-Civil War symbols Mayor Mitch Landrieu has ordered to come off public property in New Orleans. It took more than six hours for the statue, estimated to weigh between 12,000 and 14,000 pounds, to be separated from its pedestal. Workers were also removing the name plate from the front of the base.” (Submitted on May 17, 2017.)
