Baltimore's confederate monuments

The week after deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, crews working for the city of Baltimore removed four public monuments linked to the Confederacy. The surprise action, preceded by a vote by the City Council, ended months of uncertainty surrounding the monuments.

The monuments removed included the Confederate Women's Monument (pictured) at University Parkway and Charles Street; the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument at Mount Royale Avenue near Mosher Street, the Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson Monument near the Baltimore Museum of Art and Wyman Park Drive and the Roger B. Taney Monument on Mount Vernon Place north of the Washington Monument.
