Maryland Day, March 25

Happy Maryland Day.
There was a campaign recently to try to change the lyrics of the official state song because it is anti-Lincoln and pro-Confederacy.
Regardless of one's views, we should resist the urge to engage in such revisionism.
The song is what it is. And I think there is something to be admired in its rebellious lyrics, even if the cause was not so great.
