This video shows footage of the dedication of the WWII memorial at Falls Road and Weldon Avenue.
A few weeks ago I wrote about stumbling on to this monument in Hampden/Medfield. A reader alerted me to this video clip on YouTube via Twitter. I was extremely excited to see this footage and it helped me put the monument in some historic context. When I wrote the original piece on Feb. 15, I noticed the inscription had a certain New Deal flair to it: "Freedom of Worship and Speech Freedom From Fear and Want." If you watch the video closely a young woman marches by carrying a Democratic club banner. Follow North Baltimore Patch on Facebook and Twitter.

Patch is looking for more details about this monument is dedicated to the men and women of Medfield who served during World War II.
Just on the west side of Falls Road where Elsa Terrace turns to a traffic circle, and in the shadow of the antennas on Television Hill sits a monument that may be easily overlooked. If you're not looking for the memorial as you're driving along Falls Road, it's easy to pass, unnoticed, unless you turn your head at exactly the right moment. On the side of the monument facing Falls Road it announces the reason for the memorial. On the side facing west it reads: "Freedom of Worship and Speech Freedom From Fear and Want." I'm not exactly sure about the history of this marker. Is there anyone out there that can help tell me about this or where I can find more about it?
