WASHINGTON STATUES, MONUMENTS, MEMORIALS
Battle Monument, Baltimore
Completed in 1829, the memorial to those who died in the Battle of Northpoint during the War of 1812 was the first major architectural memorial to George Washington. The 160 ft. high column is topped by our first president dressed in a Roman toga and relinquishing his commission as Commander-in-Chief. The square marble base is inscribed with his Revolutionary War victories.
