Preserve Talbot History, an organization that has led efforts to educate the public on the historical context of the Talbot Boys statue, announces the formation of a search committee to keep the statue inside Talbot County, Maryland. The committee is comprised of citizens focused on finding a location for the monument.
As was disclosed during the September 14, 2021 Talbot County Council meeting, the Shenandoah Valley Battlefield Foundation “makes clear that the preferred and long-term treatment of monuments is for them to remain where originally placed and cared for in perpetuity.”
PTH President David Montgomery said “The frustrating part of all this is the fact that we have identified multiple places for the Talbot Boys in just a couple of days. Yet, councilman Frank Divilio said while presenting his resolution that no one wanted it. In addition, Mr. Divilio has told a local TV station that unfortunately, no such option exists locally. What he has told all of us is simply not true.”
Those who sought to preserve the monument are encouraged to submit their thoughts on possible locations to this address:
