I am wondering, now that Taney's statue has been removed, will there be an effort to have the former US Coast Guard cutter (Roger B.) Taney WPG/WHEC-37, presently a museum ship in Baltimore harbor, removed as well. That ship is one of seven 327' 'Treasury' class cutters that fought in WWII and she served up until 1986. Those cutters were named for former Secretaries of the Treasury as the USCG was part of that department until 1967 when it was transferred to the Department of Transportation. The Taney is the last ship afloat that fired shots in defense during the Pearl Harbor attack and served as the command ship for the invasion of Okinawa. She served both in the Pacific and the Atlantic and has been placed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Interestingly, her decommissioning date was Dec 7, 1986...

Amen - apparently ignorance is bliss. A well written article.
