Maryland’s last public confederate statue to be removed

“The century-old “Talbot Boys Statue,” located on the county courthouse lawn in Easton, is the state’s last public monument of Confederate figures who fought for the South during the Civil War. The copper sculpture features a 13-foot tall boy holding a Confederate flag and lists the names of Talbot County men who joined the Confederacy and died in the war.”
