Opis 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 Authorization for the Commission was extended to when the Memorial was dedicated on July 23, 1998, and formally rescinded in December 2008.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.
