Battle Monument

This memorial to the men who died defending their city during the War of 1812's Battle of Baltimore (which occurred in September 1814, a juxtaposition of dates that has confounded schoolchildren for generations) was completed in 1825. That's it on the city's flag and seal. (Pictured: Battle Monument rubber collection during World War II)
