A pro-Confederate monuments group is accusing Mayor Mitch Landrieu of ignoring the vandalism of several sites that remain standing around New Orleans. Most notably, the Monumental Task Committee points to the damage done to a lesser-known monument to Charles Didier Dreux, releasing photos of the monument's nose having been broken off and spray painted with an anarchist symbol.
Dreux's statue honors his status as the first Confederate officer from Louisiana to be killed during the Civil War. It is a smaller, little-noticed monument that sits across Canal Street on the neutral ground across from the former location of the Jefferson Davis monument, one of four the city removed between April 24 and May 19.
