  2. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your design.
    Thank you

  6. Thank you for doing this. Is this project complete? As of today, 1 July 2015, this project just graduated to historical importance to all citizens of the untied States.

    How you may ask? With the Mayor of Baltimore asking for a commission to be established to seek recommendation on the removal of confederate sculptures and statues, this site has recorded and preserved by location and photography of these memorials.

    It seems to me many people are reacting on emotion rather than thinking this through. Regardless of what the statue memorializes, the person or object was part of the US history, you erase it, you erase how people got here, no matter how painful the journey was.

  7. Fantastic idea! Fantastic pictures. I thought i read somewhere that there is actually a catalog published by the city of all its monuments. Is this true? Where might I pick it up? Thanks.

  9. Thank you for this blog! Over the past 2 years I have been compiling my own photographs of specifically memorial sculptures of Baltimoreans as references for drawings I have turned into a coloring book titled Baltimorials. Only recently I found this blog when attempting to find information about the sculptors of each work. I cannot tell you how helpful this site has been! I would like to credit this blog as a source with your permission. Also if you are interested in a copy of the coloring book once it is published, I would be happy to send you one or a few. Please feel free to email me with questions or concerns.
