St. Louis And Museum Argue Over Who Gets To Remove Confederate Monument

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.
