The plaque in downtown Salisbury marking the Confederate General John Winder is now history. It was abruptly taken down last Friday by Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver and had been the subject of efforts for its removal. Winder was in charge of confederate prison of war camps that saw thousands of union soldiers die under horrific conditions. Delmarva Public Radio's Don Rush talked with Amber Green Co-Chair of the Salisbury City Lynching Memorial Task Force who has been pushing for the sign's removal.
