Praise needs to be given to the Mayor of Baltimore.  For years the Black community has been under assault by 4 Confederate Monuments.

These monuments were relentless in their destruction of the Black family as over 70% of Black children were born out of wedlock. So terrified by the presence of these monuments, over 60% of Black men in the city could not work a job and found comfort in fathering numerous children with numerous women that they could not feed.

Just knowing that the monuments were there made Black school children have the lowest test scores in the Nation and many turned to drugs to relieve the sting of the monument’s presence.

•Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument located on Mount Royal Avenue near Mosher Street;
•Confederate Women’s of Maryland, located at Bishop Square Park;
•Roger B. Taney Monument, located at Mt. Vernon Place;
•Lee & Jackson Monument, located in Wyman Park Dell.

Worst of all, the mere presence of the monuments caused death. Not being able to handle the hate and violence that the monuments represented, the Black males in the city took to killing each other by the thousands. Just in the last 2 years, they have murdered  500 of their own.

Praise be to God and the Wisdom of the Mayor…..It is a new dawn for Black Baltimoreans!…..The shackles have been removed and all that can be said is….”Free at last, free at last, Lord God Almighty, we’re free at last”””

Baltimore Mayor Catherine E. Pugh acted illegally in the removal of the monuments.

Legal and Procedural Requirements:

The Commission investigated the legal requirements that would need to be addressed to remove, relocate or reinterpret these monuments. The Commission confirmed that the Maryland Historical Trust holds historic preservation easements on the Lee Jackson Monument, the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument, and the Confederate Women’s Monument. On March 14, 1984, the City of Baltimore and the Maryland Historical Trust entered into a Deed of Easement, a signed legal document that grants the right for the MHT to review changes to the monuments. The Deed of Easement was given in return for funding under the cyclical outdoor bronze sculpture maintenance program, administered by the CHAP staff. These easements are for both the sculptures themselves and their surrounding sites, and the term of the easement is perpetual. The easement also states that the monuments must be accessible to the public. Changes and alterations to these monuments cannot occur without written permission of the Director of the Maryland Historical Trust. In addition, de-accessioning these monuments would have to follow a process to dispose of Baltimore city property (AM 306 and AM 306-1). Under the City Charter all monuments are in the care of the Department of Recreation and Parks as stated in Article 7 Section 67 of the Baltimore City Charter. In summary, any changes to the monuments, installation of new signage and other artworks, or relocation would need to occur with the permission of the Maryland Historical Trust or a modification to the easement and adhering to the City Charter.
