3 Frederick County Monuments To Undergo Facelift

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- Three monuments honoring veterans in Frederick County are scheduled to get a facelift this week.

The Frederick News-Post reports that the monuments include the Frederick World War I Memorial in Memorial Park; the War Memorial in Woodsboro; and the Braddock Monument in Braddock Heights.

The Frederick memorial features bronze tablets with the names of 2,095 people from the county who served in World War I.

The Woodsboro memorial commemorates more than 200 people who served in both world wars.

The Braddock monument marks the site of a spring reportedly used by British Gen. Edward Braddock and his aide, Lt. Col. George Washington, as they traveled to Pennsylvania during the French and Indian War.

The conservation work is being directed by The Maryland Historical Trust.
