A monument honoring Confederate soldiers is staying put for now in front of Talbot County’s Courthouse in Easton, Maryland.
The Talbot County Council voted 3-2 on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, against removing the statue.
The statue, dedicated in 1916, commemorates the 84 soldiers from the county who fought for the Confederacy.
