Today (July 10), in Charlottesville, VA, where a fellow human being was recently murdered by a white supremacist, the statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson — Charlottesville’s last remaining Confederates monuments — stand proudly no more.

But here, here in beloved Talbot County, not so. No, the “Lucky Few” continue to have and to hold sway, from this day forward, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, a Confederate Monument for “All” to enjoy. Our very own “Boys,” — a green embryo, floating in the formaldehyde of history. Preserved. Life-less. Soul-less. Yes, friends. We’re collectively so “Honored”, so “Proud” to ensure Talbot County‘s “Preserved History . . . .”
