John Eager Howard was a Revolutionary War hero & politician from Maryland

An Equestrian Statue Erected By The Municipal Art Society Of Baltimore. Addresses Delivered At The Unveiling. Issued By The Municipal Art Society of Baltimore, 1904. 5 1/4 x 8 1/4, 45 pages, illustrated front piece, very thick card stock covers. Comes with an original unused 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 envelope. Imprinted at the upper left corner is, "Fremiet's Howard, Issued by The Municipal Art Society of Baltimore." Both items are in very nice condition.

John Eager Howard: (1752-1827) Born in Baltimore County, Maryland. At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War he was commissioned a captain and in 1777 was promoted to the rank of colonel in the Maryland Line of the Continental Army. He fought in the Battle of White Plains, New York, in 1776, and in the Battle of Monmouth, New Jersey in 1778. He was awarded a silver medal by the Confederation Congress for his leadership at the 1781 Battle of Cowpens in South Carolina, during which he commanded the 2nd Maryland Regiment. In September 1781, he was wounded in a bayonet charge at the Battle of Eutaw Springs, South Carolina. Southern Army commander General Nathanael Greene wrote that Howard was "as good an officer as the world affords. He has great ability and the best disposition to promote the service....He deserves a statue of gold."

After his military service, Howard held several electoral political positions. He was elected to the Confederation Congress in 1788; served as Governor of Maryland, 1788-91; Maryland State Senator 1791-95; and Presidential Elector in the new 1787 Constitutional Electoral College set up in the presidential Election of 1792. He declined the offer from President George Washington in 1795 to be the second United States Secretary of War. He joined the newly organized Federalist Party and was elected to the 4th U.S. Congress serving 1796-97; he then served as U.S. Senator until 1803. Howard County, Maryland, is named for him, as well as Eager Street and Howard Street in Baltimore.

In 1904, the city of Baltimore commissioned an equestrian statue of Howard by the eminent French sculptor Emmanuel Frémiet and installed it at Washington Monument circle facing north from the north park of the circle up North Charles Street, in Baltimore.

Howard is one of several notable men of Maryland mentioned in the state song "Maryland, My Maryland" written in 1861 by James Ryder Randall; the phrase "Howard's war-like thrust" refers to him.
