The many war, and other monuments surrounding Baltimore, gave John Quincy Adams cause to call it “The Monumental City”, which became its nickname.

The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad began operations in Baltimore in 1830.

A dispute between citizens and bankers caused riots and skirmishes, and stalled business for some time in 1835. Baltimore’s economy was maintained, at that time, with the transportation of the area’s tobacco and cotton, as well as a variety of manufactures. The National Road and the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad extended to the northwest through the Patapsco River Valley. The railroad completed the graceful Thomas Viaduct across the Patapsco River in 1835 to better connect Baltimore with Washington DC. At that time it was considered the largest bridge in the country. The granite arched railroad bridge was named a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and is still used today. The multiple-arched curved viaduct spanning 612 feet was constructed of locally quarried stone.

This general relief map engraved in 1836 by J. Yeager of Philadelphia shows drainage, roads, canals, and railroads. Cities and towns are labeled.

Features distance charts between cities and the regions valued medicinal springs.
