Baltimore Mayor Joins Growing Movement to Remove Confederate Monuments
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is considering a plan to remove Confederate monuments littered around the city, echoing the work of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. Both mayors are Democrats.
Pugh told the Baltimore Sun that the city wants to remove the structures, which elevate the pro-slavery Confederacy in a diverse city. She added, “We will take a closer look at how we go about following in the footsteps of New Orleans.”
The monuments include the “Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument,” the “Confederate Women’s Monument,” and a monument honoring Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
