Stanley's service warrants having Laurel's library named for him [Letter]
I find it unfortunate that the Prince George's County Library Board believes it needs to remove Charles Stanley's name from Laurel's newly expanded and renovated library when it reopens. Citing Stanley's Confederate military experience — he served as a private in Company B, 1st Maryland Cavalry, CS — -is not only political correctness run amuck, it ignores and defies the post war contributions this man made to his community, his state and the United States for nearly a half century after Appomattox.
