Regarding Confederate Monument. These 17 confederates were originally buried in scattered locations around Silver Spring. In 1874 they were re-interred in cemetery space donated by Montgomery Blair. This monument was erected in 1897 when the 17 confederate graves were moved again to make way for a street-car track running along Georgia Avenue.
