(The issue of Civil War Mounuments - Bobbi Steele)

Members are asking so I will share what I am able to find that doesn't make it to the full blown Network News/Social Media. Quit over the last few years, the issue of the monuments to/representing soldiers of the Confederate States of America is creeping its way towards Delaware and Maryland. So far, it's been pretty quiet. But it is coming our way.
