Time Capsules Inside Confederate Statues



https://www.wwltv.com/vid...89-8209281


Looky what was underneath the P.G.T. Beauregard Statue that was taken down awhile back here in New Orleans. Confederate Flags, Money and Memorabilia. The statue was from 1913, exactly when they made a push to further intimidate African Americans, discussed on previous threads in this forum. They found it when they removed the base of the statue this week. There is another capsule inside it. Some of the horror keepsakes were ruined by Katrina waters, too bad - so sad. The news coverage is downplaying what all that stuff really means, shocking huh?


Pierre Gustave Toutant-Beauregard (May 28, 1818 – February 20, 1893) was an American military officer who was the first prominent general of the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. - Wikipedia


Our illustrious Attorney General, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is likely his namesake.

Big story for Fox News too. And that weren't no US flag either, lol.

Turn-of-the-century tour books, lots of Confederate cash, a post-Civil War medal, and a flag too tattered by time to tell whether it was U.S. or Confederate were among items removed Friday from a 1913 time capsule buried beneath a Confederate monument.

The statue of the Confederacy's first general, P.G.T. Beauregard , was among four Confederate monuments removed last year. Its pedestal was removed last week.
