Actually there is a Fredrick Douglas statue in the county - in front of the new library in St. Michaels. In doing some additional investigation in regards to the proposed CH statue - 1) a request has not been made to place the statue in the CH, 2) apparently some of the individuals proposing the statue have ruffled (have no information as to how) some community leaders feathers 3) these same individuals have thus far not involved those in the county historical society which I have become greatly involved with since moving here 6 months ago.

Another interesting aside on a related topic. We at the historical society are currently researching a slave uprising or "run" which occurred in the county.
