This project was funded by an archeological survey grant from the Archeological Society of Maryland.
The markings of Baltimore’s Civil War heritage are all around us, from downtown landmarks like President Street Station, to military buttons, ceramic ware, and bits of metal of every variety that lie literally under our feet. In 2011, Baltimore Heritage and the Friends of West Baltimore Squares dug into the history of Civil War-era Baltimore with an archeological investigation in Lafayette Square. This project was organized with support from the Archeological Society of Maryland, the Maryland Historical Trust, and the local community.
