Lee Circle Review
At the northern edge of the Warehouse District, an 1884 bronze statue of Civil War general Robert E. Lee stands high above the city on a white marble column in a traffic circle. New Orleanians say the commander in chief of the Confederacy, depicted with his arms crossed, is symbolically turning his back on the North. Developments over the past several years have greatly improved the area immediately around the circle, which now includes the Contemporary Arts Center, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the National World War II Museum, and Louisiana's Civil War Museum at Confederate Memorial Hall.
