A chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy complained about the recent removal of a statue of a Confederate soldier from a San Antonio park. The Fifth Circuit affirmed the dismissal of its claim, observing (1) an 1899 document relating to the construction of the statue did not create a conveyance or use privilege for the relevant land; and (2) if it had done so, any such conveyance expired when an earlier chapter that actually received the document ceased operations in 1972, without conveying any such interest to its successor. Albert Sidney Johnston Chapter, Chapter No. 2060, UDC v. City of San Antonio, No. 20-50155 (Aug. 25, 2021).
