Preserve Talbot History Statement on Lawsuit to Compel Removal of Civil War Memorial

EASTON, MD May 6, 2021. Yesterday a group of activists and organizations filed
suit in federal court to compel Talbot County to remove a 100-year-old memorial
to local veterans who fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War. David
Montgomery, speaking on behalf of the Preserve Talbot History organization,
made this statement:
“Creating frivolous lawsuits to distract from the real issues facing Talbot families
is unwelcome and harmful. We are a hard-working community that appreciates
all History and are fortunate to have elected representatives who have made it
clear they will not engage in the destruction of our History that means many
things to many people.
Talbot County welcomes people from around the globe who come here to
experience our natural environment and history, but we draw a line when they
tell us how to live, work, and raise our families. We certainly don’t need
outsiders telling us how to preserve our History. We will not be divided by these
disingenuous outsiders and their hand-picked, local agitators.”
More information about the Talbot Boys memorial and controversy is available
at www.preservetalbothistory.org. The website contains original source
documents that establish the facts about how Maryland was treated by Federal
troops during the Civil War, how and why men from Talbot County enlisted in
the Confederate army, and the history of their memorial. These documents
establish that this lawsuit relies on false claims about that history.
