Boys For Sale....
Perhaps this arrangement of boxes could be viewed as an artwork commemorating Maryland’s history as a slave state? Yesterday was the day decendants of the soldiers who fought for the Confederacy honored the memory of 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. See my image set Ceremony Honoring Confederate Soldiers
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.
