racist liberty place monument
by matt Tuesday, Jun. 01, 2004 at 3:47 PM

Anti-Nazi messages are written on the "Liberty Monument" near Canal Place in New Orleans. The monument honors the White League members who died in an 1874 armed attack against the integrated Reconstruction government of Louisiana.

David Duke had planned a rally to occur at this monument on Sunday, May 30th but the event was cancelled, possibly due to the actions taken against the monument. The monument commemorates the deaths of militant racists' attempts to suppress the participation of blacks in post-Civil War Louisiana government. The monument has long been reviled as a celebration of the militant racists in the White League.

The "Battle of Liberty Place" has been called the largest street fight in American history; 3500 White League members faced 3600 New Orleans police and black militia.
