Brendan Koch, of Arnold, Missouri, looks at the Confederate Memorial after crews removed the top of it Thursday morning.

Earlier this spring, the nation was transfixed with the fight in New Orleans over the removal of its confederate monuments. That spread to other cities -- including here in St. Louis, which just removed a confederate memorial from its lauded and most famous public park. So what now? We swoop in, and with help from BackStory's Nathan Connolly, try to unearth some conclusions and next steps.
