A ceremony honoring soldiers who fought for the Confederacy

I’m a resident of Maryland, which was a slave state. Today was the day decendants of the soldiers who fought for the Confederacy honor the memory of Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson by participating in a ceremony held at the site of a statue erected to honor those two Generals in Baltimore. About 25,000 Marylanders VOLUNTEERED to fight for the Confederacy. I just thought it ironic that this ceremony took place the day before America’s first black President was to be sworn in to serve his second term and two days before the Federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King.
