LAFAYETTE, La. – Hurricane Laura damaged a controversial Confederate monument in Lake Charles, Louisiana, after officials voted to keep the statue earlier this month.
The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury voted Aug. 13 to let the South's Defenders Monument remain on the grounds of a courthouse in Lake Charles.
A Calcasieu Parish official said the parish had received 945 written responses from the public about the monument.
"Of the total responses, 878 were against relocating the monument and 67 were for relocating the monument," Calcasieu Parish Administrator Bryan Beam said.
