With all the discussion / controversy over the Confederate monuments in Baltimore, let me to 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 started with some the Confederate memorials that the city is now looking at other monuments thru the city.  Mount Vernon is home to quite a number of them centered around the Washington Monument.

Instead of creating a number of virtuals within close proximity, I thought I'd set up this virtual will take you on a tour of the various monuments around Mount Vernon. 

The given coordinates will take you to the Washington Monument.

Logging Requirements: 

1. Visit the location in person.

2. Take photos of yourself with 3 of the monuments without giving away any of the information needed for the Log Password.

3. Log Password information:  (will be added later).

 

There are a number of Munzees at Mount Vernon.  Be sure to check the map out while you're here.

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