Havre de Grace residents had mixed reactions to a photograph of the General Marquis de Lafayette statue dressed up in Orioles gear.
Several users on the Havre de Grace Patch Facebook page chimed in on the discussion.
Brian Lantz: "Revolutionary war hero, the one who named Havre de Grace, once again shows support for American Revolutionary change...in the AL East and MLB, that is."
A few readers said the costume was "fun."
Amanda Close: "Can't wait to see what he is going to be for Halloween."
Some viewed the dressed-up statue as a sign of disrespect.
Carole Williams: "If one wants to decorate their private property, go for it, but this is public and we pay for the cleanup."
Sherry Hawkins: "I personally think that its disrespectful to EVER decorate the statue!"
Others said that decorating a public monument was a gray area.
Debbie Smith: "Supporting the O's and so near Halloween...it's just something fun. Now if this were outside of a Church, and it was the Virgin Mary, or Jesus, I could understand some of your feelings."
