Baltimore Removes Four Confederate Monuments Overnight

After a unanimous city council vote Monday to remove the monuments immediately, Baltimore removed four confederate monuments Tuesday overnight.

This comes after a white nationalist protest against the removal of a confederate monument in Charlottesville, VA turned violent over the weekend leaving at least 3 dead.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the statues removed were the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Mount Royal Avenue, the Confederate Women’s Monument on West University Parkway, the Roger B. Taney Monument at Mount Vernon Place and Robert E. Lee and Thomas. J. “Stonewall” Jackson Monument at Wyman Park Dell.
