One Mayor In Kentucky Is Pushing To Move Confederate Monuments

Not Released

Gray said he had planned to make the announcement next week but that the events in Charlottesville "accelerated the announcement".

Morgan fought for the Confederacy until his death in 1864; and Breckenridge, the U.S. Vice President under James Buchanan, was the only vice president ever to take up arms against the government of the United States. "But we will also be able to add additional signage to give the statues the appropriate context and explain how they came to be and what was going on in Lexington at that time".

A mayor in Kentucky is pushing to relocate two Confederate statues following protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in three dead and several more injured. Today in Virginia we saw the extent to which white supremacists will go to protect their "heritage". We have thoroughly examined this issue, and heard from many of our citizens. "While it will never make up for the loss of a member of our community, we will pursue charges against the driver of the vehicle that caused her death and are confident justice will prevail", the city of Charlottesville said in a statement. Gray asked the Lexington city council to support his petition for removal next week. But New Orleans avoided the violence that befell Charlottesville as that city prepares to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee; Charlottesville renamed its Lee Park as Emancipation Park. Morgan was a general for the Confederacy as well as a slave owner.

Pep Guardiola: Man City need to improve attacking to have title hopes

Lexington honors history. But that history must be accurate, he said.

Ideally, the statues would be destroyed instead of just relocated, but I understand that might be a tough sell.
