City council is scheduled to vote at the start of its regular 9 o'clock meeting on "immediate" removal of the Robert E. Lee statue in Lee Park.

"Since the organization can't file it, they needed someone who lived in Dallas to be the plaintiff, so I said, 'Sure, I'll volunteer, '" said Patterson. The century-old monuments may also make Richmond the next ground zero in the fight over Civil War statues.

Before the vote, Dallas constituents held a debate in the council chamber. No one actually learns history from statues, but statues do imply a shared story, factual or not: they suggest a kind of social consensus, a collective idea of what a town is about.

The judge ruled against the plaintiffs on all of their claims.

At the end of the hearing that stretched four hours, Judge Rick Moore made a decision to take a few more weeks before ruling, although he did sustain the city's right to rename Lee Park to Emancipation Park.

Lee Millar with the Sons of the Confederacy issued this statement: "We are against the removal of any statues". Another speaker said he wanted the future not to be "bound by the delusion of white supremacy".

Jefferson Davis, the president of the CSA, who said in that role, "We are not fighting for slavery".

The council also unanimously agreed Tuesday to amend a resolution from earlier this year directing staff to hire a design firm that would redesign the two parks where the statues are located.

"We will allow some time to get ourselves together and begin to determine what the next move will be".

The latest iteration of the conflict is over the statues erected in many towns and cities to honor the Confederate dead and their generals - despite the fact that these people were traitors who tried to bring about a violent overthrow of the United States government. We do not need to obliterate the marks of civil strife, for we have much to learn from history. "So this argument that we have to keep it to preserve history, to me, is irrelevant". West said he served on Fort Bragg and Fort Hood, both named for Confederate generals. Greater said the statues enforce ideals of racism and bigotry. "They were erected exclusively for white people".

Frustrated task force member Jo Trizila voiced concerns during council member discussion "about the speed in which we are working". Taking down Confederate monuments will not do this for our nation.

On Sept. 6, the Dallas City Council voted by 13-1 to remove a statue of Lee from Lee Park in Oak Lawn, a Dallas neighborhood.

DALLAS-A last-minute court order has blocked the removal of the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a park in Dallas even as work crews were prepared to take it down. The vote came down just before 11:30 p.m. But suddenly, they stopped, because of one man.

"It's been installed since 1936. Police lives were at risk", said Caraway.
