Description   EN   

The World War II Memorial Commission was authorized by statute in 1991 and reconstituted by the Governor in 1994. The Commission advised the Governor and General Assembly on the design, construction, and placement of a memorial or monument to those Marylanders who served in World War II. In August 1997, the Board of Public Works approved the construction contract for the Memorial. The groundbreaking ceremony for the $2.3 million monument was held on October 29, 1997.

The Memorial was built on Route 450 overlooking the Severn River in Annapolis. Designed by New York architect Secundino Fernandez, the Memorial consists of a rectangular amphitheater surrounded by columns and granite slabs inscribed with the names of 6,454 Marylanders who died in World War II. Stone panels and mosaic circles further depict Maryland's role in the War.

In September 1992, the Commission submitted a report to the Governor and General Assembly. Authorization for the Commission was extended to when the Memorial was dedicated on July 23, 1998, and formally rescinded in December 2008.

This cache does have a logging password. At the coordinates, you will see three bronze plaques. You will need the one in the center, for "Autumn R. Pevzner." The logging password is the two four digit years on the second line.

3499.  Second stop in Annapolis, after work, today.  Like Chaz, I'd been her for another cache, but hadn't come down to the actual memorial.  Also, I NEVER would have visited GZ and the markers there, if not for this cache.  I will need to do a web search to find out the rest of the story.

Thankd and Happy Trails!

I was in the Annapolis area today and wanted to visit this site again. Smile The first time I was here was in January of 2008 looking for a Trevelyan's R&R cache. It was a multicache, but I wasn't required to visit the actual "Memorial". Only view from above. So believe it or not, I didn't really realize that this was down here. WoW! Surprised Thanks for bringing me down to see the Memorial. I snapped a couple of pictures. Notice the flags at half staff for the National Mourning of the Aurora, CO shootings. Cry
