Confederate Statue Comes Down

Acting with court approval, a work crew removed a Confederate statue this morning from a prominent location in Kentucky’s largest city.Work began about 6 a.m. to dismantle the John Breckenridge Castleman monument from Cherokee Triangle, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said. Shortly thereafter, only a bare pedestal remained. The decisive action followed a Jefferson Circuit Court ruling Friday after nearly two years of legal wrangling and vandalism.
