Move the Confederate Memorial from Louisville to Brandenburg, KY.
Metro Louisville has decided to remove the Confederate Memorial near the University of Louisville Campus. The officials and citizens of Meade County and Brandenburg are requesting the memorial be moved and restored in Brandenburg, KY. There are sites readily available to place the memorial in the city of Brandenburg where Confederate General John Hunt Morgan began the only invasion of the Union in the Western Theater of the War Between the States. This was a historic event in the Civil War that involved land and naval forces. Many who are honored by this memorial were veterans of Morgan’s men and it was their heirs who first constructed it.
We are asking the memorial be moved to Brandenburg and not placed in storage. The current location of the memorial does not allow easy access for historians and we think the placement of the memorial in Brandenburg would provide a destination for tourists and historians. It can be placed so it is easily accessible for viewing and study.
