Civil War II-- 513: About the John Winder Marker in Maryland

From the July 8, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Rally to keep confederate general marker on courthouse grounds set for Saturday.  (Salisbury, Md.)  (Win)  There is a petition going around to remove the marker of John Winder.  I was kind of surprised to see that local ABC affiliate 47 ABC spelled confederate without a capital letter.

It was put up by the Maryland Civil War Centennial Commission.  I did not know this was a white supremacist organization.  They would have to be if they put up a marker to a Confederate general.   Well, at least according to today's Confederate haters.

I do not know this general so will do research.

**  Ole Miss to Recognize Slave Labor on Pre-Civil War Buildings.  (Win)  Slave labor was used.  I imagine they will be using signage instead of renaming or tearing down the buildings.

Again, I Support Signage Instead of Tearing Down or Renaming If That Will Keep the Anti's Happy.  --Old Secesh
