Baltimore City Council condemns Trump's rhetoric, days before his visit

Who was Laurel's Charles Stanley?

The Stanley family deeded part of its land in Laurel to Prince George's County in 1963 specifically for a library to be built and to be named the Stanley Memorial Library. When plans for a new library were announced in 2014, some questioned keeping the Stanley name, as family member Charles Stanley,  a Laurel mayor, state comptroller and founder of Citizen’s National Bank, had also been a Confederate soldier as a 19-year-old during the Civil War.
