United States Colored Troops

United States Colored Troops Memorial Statue located in John G. Lancaster Park, Lexington Park, Maryland. The memorial and accompanying informational kiosks honors and documents the bravery of more than 600 African-American soldiers from St. Mary’s County, Maryland who fought as Union Army soldiers during the American Civil War. Includes a display on two who won the Medal of Honor,

This statue is the centerpiece of the memorial. It shows a USCT soldier in full battle dress, as he would look marching between engagements. The service of USCT soldiers and sailors was vital to the success of Union forces in the war and would ultimately contribute to the liberation of all enslaved peoples of St. Mary’s County and the United States as a whole. It would also lead to the preservation of the Union and the extension of its founding principles to all of its citizens.
