A demonstrator who did not want to be identified by name holds a sign disapproving of Confederate heritage supporters who were bearing Confederate flags in front of City Hall in New Orleans today. City Hall became the scene of competing opinions over the removal of prominent Confederate monuments along some of New Orleans' busiest thoroughfares. The City Council set aside time to let the public voice feelings over a proposal to remove four monuments linked to Confederate history. Woman at left is Arlene Barnum, of Oklahoma, with a group calling themselves Confederate Veterans Lives Matter. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)
