The an­niver­sary of the Aquila Ran­dall Mon­u­ment will be held at 3970 North Point Rd. from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

On July 21, 1817, Cap­tain Ben­jamin C. Howard’s First Me­chan­i­cal Vol­un­teers formed up early in town and marched six miles to the North Point bat­tle­ground. Ac­com­pa­ny­ing them were wag­ons con­vey­ing the mon­u­ment blocks to be as­sem­bled and ded­i­cated on site that day. The mon­u­ment’s con­struc­tion was di­rected by Lt. Thomas Tow­son, a stone ma­son “who aimed at sim­plic­ity and neat­ness.” With a final ap­pli­ca­tion of white­wash it was ded­i­cated to honor Pri­vate Aquila Ran­dall a mem­ber who was killed in a skir­mish just be­fore the Bat­tle of North Point, Septem­ber 12, 1814. The com­pany was joined by other 5th Mary­land Reg­i­ment of­fi­cers at the mon­u­ment while Cap­tain Howard de­liv­ered a mod­est ap­pro­pri­ate ad­dress:

“….I can pic­ture to my­self the sen­sa­tion of those who in far dis­tant days will con­tem­plate this mon­u­ment… and the melan­choly event which has caused our as­sem­blage at this spot… This mon­u­ment which we are now erect­ing, will stand as a solemn ex­pres­sion of the feel­ing of us all… But I re­gret that the spot, which is made clas­sic by the ef­fu­sion of blood, the sport where the long line stood un-ap­palled by the sys­tem and ad­vances of an ex­pe­ri­enced and dis­ci­plined foe, has been suf­fered to re­main un­no­ticed. It is here where her cit­i­zens stood ar­rayed sol­dier’s garb, that hon­ors to a sol­dier’s mem­ory should have been paid. To mark the spot be then our care.…”

The in­scrip­tions on the mon­u­ment read:

• [West face] – How beau­ti­ful is death, when earned by virtue.

• [East face] – SA­CRED TO THE MEM­ORY OF AQUILA RAN­DALL, Who Died, in bravely de­fend­ing his Coun­try and his home, On the mem­o­rable 12th of Septem­ber, 1814,Aged 24 years.

• [North face] – THE FIRST ME­CHAN­I­CAL

VOL­UN­TEERS, Com­manded by Capt. B.C. Howard, in the 5th Reg­i­ment, M.M. HAVE ERECTED THIS MON­U­MENT, As a trib­ute of their re­spect for THE MEM­ORY OF THEIR GAL­LANT BROTHER IN ARMS.

• [South face] – In the skir­mish which oc­curred at this spot be­tween the ad­vanced party un­der Ma­jor RICH’D K. HEATH of the 5th Reg.’ M.M. and the front of the Bri­tish col­umn, Ma­jor Gen­eral ROSS, the com­man­der of the Bri­tish force, re­ceived his mor­tal wound.
