This is where the controversial statue to Nathan Bedford Forrest is. The city authorities wish to block the view to this statue from the interstate freeway. It has been reported on in the Rachel Maddow Show, and elsewhere in the media.
Welcome, BWD. Interesting post, but bear in mind that a lot of us around the world haven't heard of Nathan Bedford Forrest, never mind his statue. Your posts will get a lot more attention if you enhance them by adding links to, say, Wiki and an image or two (remember to credit your images).
Man, that is a seriously ugly statue...
