Baltimore was the second stop of our trip with Mike, which included Philadelphia and Washington. We met our relatives and explored Baltimore on June 29, 2004.
Baltimore was established as an independent city in 1729. It is located about 40 miles (60 km) northeast of Washington. Baltimore has more public statues and monuments per capita than any other city in the country. About one third of the city's buildings are designated as historic in the National Register, which is more than any other U.S. city.
Hagerstown was founded in 1762 by Jonathan Hager, a German immigrant from Pennsylvania, who named it
Elizabethtown after his wife. City Council changed the name to Hagerstown in 1813.
It is located approximately 70 miles (110 km) northwest of Washington. We passed through Hagerstown on our way home from Washington on July 4, 2004.
Photos of Hagerstown 's lanterns are placed at the bottom of the page (#27, 28, 29).
