MEMLJ_060402_05.JPG: The Lee/Jackson memorial was sculpted by Laura Gardin Fraser, paid for by J. Henry Ferguson, and dedicated in 1948. A Baltimore banker, he left $100,000 in his will for the memorial. The pedestal was designed by John Russell Pope.
Around the pedestal are these words:
"So great is my confidence in General Lee that I am willing to follow him blindfolded. Straight as the needle to the pole Jackson advanced to the execution of my purpose."
"They were great generals and Christian soldiers and waged war like gentlemen -- Ferguson"
"The parting of General Lee and Stonewall Jackson on the eve of Chancellorsville"
"Gift of J. Henry Ferguson of Maryland"

Wikipedia Description: Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee Monument
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee Monument, often referred to simply as the Jackson and Lee Monument or Lee and Jackson Monument, was a double equestrian statue of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, formerly located on the west side of the Wyman Park Dell in Charles Village in Baltimore, Maryland, alongside a forested hill, similar to the topography of Chancellorsville, Virginia, where Stonewall Jackson and Robert E.

The monument was located on the west side of the Wyman Park Dell along Art Museum Drive from its dedication until its removal by the Baltimore City Government.

In January 2016, the commission decided that the Jackson and Lee Monument, along with William Henry Rhinehart's Roger B. Taney Sculpture in Mount Vernon Place would be removed.
On August 15, 2017, Baltimore city council voted unan ...More...

2006 photos: Equipment this year: I was using all six Fuji cameras at various times -- an S602Zoom, two S7000s,a S5200, an S9000, and an S9100. The majority of pictures this year were taken with the S9000. I have to say, the S7000s was the best camera I've used up to this point..
Trips this year: Florida (two separate trips including Lotusphere and taking care of mom), three weeks out west (including Yellowstone), Williamsburg, San Diego (comic book convention), and Georgia.
Number of photos taken this year: 183,000.
