New Orleans - CBD: Lee Circle - Robert E. Lee Monument The Robert E. Lee Monument, a 60-foot marble doric column, topped by a 12-foot state of Confederate general Robert E.

The 250-foot diameter circular plot of land, encircled by St. Charles Avenue in its 900 and 1000 blocks was named after Robert E. Lee by the New Orleans City Council in 1877. Dedicated on February 23, 1884.
See the movie HASHI; true story (with Richard Gere). In Scotland I saw a famous dog statue next to a pub where the owner and his dog are buried. The dog never left the grave site for years after the owner died so they put up a monument with the story.
