New Orleans – Several police officers and barricades surrounded the Battle of Liberty Place monument early Monday morning to begin the removal process of the Confederate-era landmark.

WDSU reporter Travers Mackel said at least two dozen special operations officers made their way to the monument before 2 a.m. Monday.

Barricades were put up and streets were closed off around the monument near the Mississippi Riverfront. Large trucks with equipment also arrived in the area.
