Phoenix Shot Tower

Monday, 27 May 2013 09:54 Written by

The Shot Tower at the corner of Front and Fayette Street was built in 1828, and it said to be the finest early specimen of brickwork on this continent. It raises 220 feet above the pavement and has a foundation 17 feet in depth, resting upon solid rock.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

In 1912, Samuel Battle was the First African American appointed to the NYPD. He rose to the rank of Lieutenant. Meanwhile, in Baltimore, African Americans had been pressuring Maryland Governor Harry Nice, Baltimore Mayor Howard Jackson, the Maryland General Assembly and the Baltimore City Council to hire black police officers. The effort was led by a Baltimore Real Estate Broker named Marse Colloway. Calloway had started a police training school to prepare African Americans to take the Civil Service Examination to be a Police Officer. Black leaders scheduled a rally at the Bethel AME Church (^) on Druid Hill Ave.
