Dear Louisiana Veteran,

   It has been over a year since the City Council of New Orleans voted to remove four monuments on so-called public property.
   Three of these monuments were dedicated to Confederate leaders who also,
through an act of the U.S. Congress, were accorded veteran status. These three men are:
Robert E. Lee, P.G.T. Beauregard, and Jefferson Davis. One year later, these
monuments remain standing! They remain in place due to the hard work and
dedication of many citizens in our state who do not wish to see part of Louisiana's
cultural heritage destroyed. Many working to preserve these
monuments are veterans, just like you.
   The office of the City Attorney of New Orleans has abundant resources for fighting
what has now become a significant legal battle. On the other hand, those fighting to
preserve these monuments must garner the necessary funds to fight the City of New
Orleans. Soon, there will be a decision by the United States Fifth District of Appeals
and it will make national news. However, no matter the outcome, our court battle will
continue. We respectfully ask that you consider contributing to the defense
fund dedicated solely to protecting and preserving these 100-plus year old monuments.
If each Louisiana Veteran donated just $20, we would have enough to fight this
battle to its conclusion.

   Lastly, we are working with various state legislators hoping to draft a bill
that would protect all Louisiana monuments or statues honoring U.S. Veterans.
Several states have similar heritage protection bills. To get such a bill passed,
we believe it will be necessity for an impressive number of Louisiana Veterans,
in a show of support, to travel to the state Capitol when the Legislature is in session,
If you want to be kept apprised of this possibility, please send an email stating your willingness to support this effort to: info@monumentaltask.org Thank you for your service.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Monumental Task Committee
