Back to Baltimore, Part 1: The Baltimore Washington Monument

Lafayette & Washington Monuments

This beautiful tribute to our Nation's first President predates the one in Washington DC by 55 years. You can learn all about it by following this link - Baltimore's Washington Monument - to my travel blog.

  4. We have a lot of beautiful scenery out here, well not where I love! But the history, the things I learned about in school, when they were still teaching history, real history, are lacking. I've seen enough ghost towns to last a lifetime!

    Thanks for all of your hard work, and believe me, it is really appreciated in my house!!

    Seriously. There must be a way to get paid for writing these kinds of history posts.

    Washington dressed as a Roman warrior would have been unique. Quite the concept.
    No Roman warrior uniforms or togas for the father of our country!

    Wonderful post.
