Move the Monument Coalition is pleased to see Talbot County begin to take action to move the Confederate statue off the courthouse lawn. Today, the county issued an RFP, or a request for proposal, for companies to bid on removing the statue. The coalition has been raising money to remove the statue. Taxpayers will not pay for its removal.
Under the resolution passed by the County Council Sept. 14, the statue will be moved from the Easton courthouse to the Cross Keys Battlefield, a private park in Harrisonburg, Virginia, “as soon as is practicable.” The statue will then be under the care of the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation.
