A Missouri museum sued St. Louis Friday over ownership of a Confederate monument in the city. Both parties want to remove the memorial, but insist upon their sole ownership.

The Missouri Civil War Museum sued St. Louis and filed a temporary restraining order, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The museum asserts it will remove the statue from the city’s Forest Park by Friday June 23, with no cost to taxpayers provided the city acknowledges its ownership.

“If you decide to challenge our ownership of this monument that will of course have to result in immediate legal action being taken to prove our ownership,” said Mark Trout, director of the Missouri Civil War Museum, in a letter sent to St. Louis mayor Lyda Krewson.

  1. Well, I hope the museum gets it. The city will hide it in a warehouse forever.
