Watson Monument

Clue 9 Watson Monument, Mount Royal Terrace and North Avenue, 1903. Off Exit 6 of the Jones Falls Expressway, Lt. Col. William Watson is immortalized for commanding the Battalion of Baltimore and District of Columbia Volunteers during the Mexican-American War. At this busy intersection, the memorial honors Marylanders who died in the war from 1846 to 1848. Bonus fact: Watson earned an honorable mention in the fourth verse of "Maryland, My Maryland."
