"Company D” 2nd Maryland Infantry is a Confederate Civil War living history group based in Baltimore, Maryland and operates in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US. Our Company is member to both The Southern Division and the CWHI organizations. Our goal is to educate and provide the public with an accurate portrayal of soldiers who served in the 2nd Maryland Infantry CSA 1862-1865.

Statement: On behalf of Company D, I would like to announce our group will not support or attend any event that prohibits any of the Confederate flags or unit Colors to be flown (period correct for that particular event) or the United Staes Flag. We will not support any organization or event that thinks the removal of American monuments is acceptable (Confederate or otherwise). We are not trying to be political. We are a small group of historians who enjoys teaching and researching history. We feel history should be viewed objectively and preserved. We feel altering history is an injustice regardless of what premise or grounds. We feel being silent to an injustice is just as much as a crime as those who perpetrate the actual offense. Removing historical references or sanitizing history is a slippery slope. The removal of the confederate flags and monuments today; George Washington monuments tomorrow; eventually working to possible removal of the United States flag in future as it may offend someone. 
-A country that fails to learn from its history is doomed to repeat it-

Respectfully, 
Company D, 2nd Maryland Infantry
