Hurricane Laura Topples Controversial Louisiana Confederate Statue

August 27, 2020

Winds from Hurricane Laura caused a controversial statue to topple over. The South Defenders Monument has stood in front of the courthouse in Lake Charles, Louisiana since 1915. It depicts confederate soldiers from the south, according to the American Press. Earlier this month, a jury voted to keep it up, despite a petition to have it removed. It’s too early to know whether the statue will be fixed or removed all together due to the damage from the storm.
