The "peace cross" in Hyattsville, Md.

A World War One memorial called the Peace Cross is at the center of controversy in Prince George’s County. Sitting on public land and maintained with public money, it was ruled a violation of the separation of Church and State last week. But Governor Larry Hogan wants Maryland to challenge that decision. Hogan directed Attorney General Frosh to file an amicus brief in the case, saying the case was “wrongly decided.” We discuss the background of the case and look at where it could be heading next.
