Protesters Topple Only Outdoor Statue of Confederate Military Soldier in Washington D.C., Albert Pike

An outdoor statue of Albert Pike was toppled about 11:30 p.m. ET in Washington D.C. Albert Pike was commissioned as a brigadier general of the Conferate States Army on November 22, 1861, and given a command in the Indian Territory. Pike trained three Confederate regiments of Indian cavalry with Gen. Ben McCulloch. Most of the Indians belonged to the “civilized tribes”, and their loyalty to the Confederacy was considered variable.

Pike was frequently in conflict with superior officers and ultimately resigned from Confederate States Army in November 1862.

The memorial to Pike that was toppled was located in the Judiciary Square neighborhood of Washington, D.C. near Indiana Ave NW and 3rd St NW, and also near the Metropolitan Police Department.
