Please cosponsor my bill H.R. 4135 to require the removal of a statue of Confederate General Albert Pike from federal land near Judiciary Square in the District of Columbia. This statue is different from other Confederate statues elsewhere in the United
States, as it was authorized by Congress in 1898 and paid for, in part, with federal funds. The Freemasons, of which Pike was a member, donated the majority of the funds needed to build and install the statue in 1901.
