HELLO CHARM CITY – BALTIMORE BALTIMORE , MARYLAND . THE OTHER WASHINGTON MONUMENT .

By now  you’ve  heard  all the  negative  stuff  about  Baltimore ,  but you made it the next  city on your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  anyway .

You haven’t  been  disappointed  at all.

You’re  in the  Mount Vernon  district  of the  city, which  is  quite  pleasant .

Maybe  later today ,  you’ll  visit  the  Little  Italy  section  and maybe  tomorrow ,  you’ll  go out to  Locust  Point ,  where Fort McHenry  is .

You’ve  done  quite  a  bit  of  walking ,  but two statues on this  street  corner  catch  your  eyes .

One of  which  is  the statue  of  the  Marquis  du  FB_IMG_1488975443120Lafayette  of Revolutionary  War fame, and the  other is called  The Washington  Monument .

Wait a minute  – WHAT ? !

You’ve  seen  the Washington  Monument  in Washington  DC ,  this  one looks  NOTHING  like  it.

This  one has a statue  of  George  Washington  on top of  it.

The plaque  on the side  of  the  monument  explains  it all to you.

This monument  was built  before  the  more famous  one in Washington  DC .

This one came first.

So you guess you can say that you’re  looking  at  the  ORIGINAL  Washington  Monument .
