Confederate Statues Mayors Request

FILE- In this May 19, 2017, file photo, workers prepare to take down the statue of former Confederate general Robert E. Lee, which stands over 100 feet tall, in Lee Circle in New Orleans. Hanceville Mayor Kenneth Nail wrote to New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, asking him and city leaders to consider donating Confederate monuments recently removed from their pedestals in New Orleans to his town so they could be displayed in Veterans Memorial Park in Hanceville, Ala. Landrieu's office didn't immediately respond Monday, June 19, to an emailed request for comment. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
