Automatic translation thanks to:

With all the discussion / controversy over all things Confederate, recently, I had seen that 3 out of Baltimore's 4 Civil War monuments are dedicated to the Confederacy.

This led me to look more into Baltimore's various monuments and I found the website, Monument City Blog (MCB).  Per their site, "Monument City is a human-scale geotagging project. We’re riding our bikes around Baltimore City to document historical monuments, memorials and markers with GPS, photos and other first-person data."

I figured I'd start with some the Confederate memorials that the city is now looking into possibly removing.

Spirit of the Confederacy

 

Per the MCB, ...this monument reads upon the front face of the pedestal, “Gloria Victis,” or “Glory to the Vanquished.” Though this sculpture is by Frederic Wellington Ruckstull and was dedicated in February of 1903, Gloria Victis is also the title of a 1874 sculpture at the National Gallery in Washington, DC by artist Antonin Mercie commemorating France’s loss in the Franco-Prussian War. 
"The monument stands between Mt Royal Avenue proper, and Mt Royal Terrace, a parallel access street for residents of the Bolton Hill neighborhood. Nearby stand several buildings of the Maryland Institute, College of Art. The sculpture is composed of two figures: the allegorical figure of Glory with wings outstretched, who holds aloft a laurel wreath in one hand, and in the other supports a soldier whose strength is failing him. His flag is lowered and he seems near defeat.

The sculpture is also known as Spirit of the Confederacy.

Logging Requirements: 

1. Visit the site in person.

2.  Post a photo of your and / or your GPS with the monument.

3.  Log Password - On the back of the monument what are the 2 words (as they appear) on the 3rd line?  (letters only, no spaces)

While I'm a proud Yankee, I do live in Maryland - The Old Line State.  We had the most divided loyalties of any state during the Civil War and had units on both sides.  The only reason the legilature didn't vote to secede was that Lincoln sent troops to arrest the pro-Confederate members of the General Assembly while they were in special session in Frederick.  So, the Civil War is a major part of the state's history.


There are one or 2 Munzees in this small park.  Be sure to check the map out while you're here.

 

I also created a few new Sighter locations in the area.

Sculpture was removed by the City of Baltimore on August 15, 2017.  As of now, if the base is still in place, you'll be able to gather the needed information and it is loggable. Simply take a photo with the base.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

1 18 July 2015 sfcchaz Znaleziona

Laughing FTF Laughing 1:20 PM. Well, on the way here I almost turned around because Artscape 2015 was happening right around this area and a lot of the streets were closed. But I went about half a mile north of this location and found some street parking. I made the round trip to this cache and one groundspeak nearby for a total of 3.18 miles in the hottest part of the day. But with the great crowd and stuff to look at, it didn't seem too bad. There was a live band right next to GZ that sounded pretty good too. TFTC
