Removing A Statue

Acting with court approval, a work crew removed a Confederate statue on Monday from a prominent location in Kentucky’s largest city. Crews dismantled the John Breckenridge Castleman monument from Cherokee Triangle, according to Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. Shortly after all that remained was a bare pedestal. The decisive action followed a Jefferson Circuit Court ruling Friday after nearly two years of legal wrangling and vandalism.he statue will be cleaned and stored until it can be moved, likely to Cave Hill Cemetery, where Castleman is buried, officials said.
