The statue was the third out of four Confederate statues that was slated for removal in the city. Pro-monument groups were separated from monument protestors with metal barricades - similar to the setup at Jefferson Davis - and with occasional yelling matches between the groups. The Beauregard statue occupied a traffic circle near the entrance to City Park, a space that also is home to an oak tree that is reportedly 800 years old and has a colorful local history, which includes balls, fairs and duels.
The street cars are still not running on St. Charles near Lee Circle.
Similar to the first two removals, the process with the Beauregard statue began late at night and went into the early morning, ending at about 3 a.m. Workers covered their faces, though they did not wear bulletproof vests, which was a precautionary measure taken during the first two due to death threats to the contractor. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are present to ensure public safety. The removal is expected to be completed today. But the event remained peaceful.
