2. Lee Jackson Monument, 1948. Special Commission to Review Baltimore's Public Confederate Monuments

“The Lee and Jackson Monument was the first double equestrian monument in the United States. The funds for the sculpture {by Laura Gardin Fraser} came from J. Henry Ferguson, the banker who organized the Colonial Trust Company. In his will, he left specific instructions for a monument of his childhood heroes, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, which was gifted to the City of Baltimore. Although Ferguson died in 1928, the sculpture was not dedicated until 1948 due to various factors, including World War II.” (Submitted on March 7, 2019, by Allen C. Browne of Silver Spring, Maryland.)
