With Lee statue gone in Virginia, all eyes on Maryland’s Talbot County

- Grenville B. Whitman, Rock Hall

Given that Gen. Robert E. Lee’s statue has been removed from its pedestal in Richmond, Virginia, the former capital of the Confederac­y, surely the “Talbot Boys” figure can be removed forthwith from the Talbot County courthouse grounds in Easton (“Virginia takes down Robert E. Lee statue in ‘historic moment’ for Richmond,” Sept. 8).

And for the same reasons: It’s an anachronis­tic symbol of white supremacy and a daily affront to all who seek a fair and just society.
