Group to make "significant update" on future of Beauregard statue

NEW ORLEANS, LA. - An organization claiming to make a "significant announcement" about the future of one of the removed Confederate monuments abruptly canceled the announcement Tuesday morning.

Richard Marksbury with the Beauregard Monument Association was expected to give an update about "a new legal development" regarding the P.G.T. Beauregard Equestrian Statue around 11 a.m. Tuesday. The event was supposed to take place at the pedestal where the statue once stood.

Just before 9 a.m., the organization said the event was canceled. The group did not provide a reason why it was postponed or a new date.

The statue was removed from its pedestal located in City Park in May.
