Proceedings of the Fifth National History and Heritage Congress at the 2004 ASCE Annual Conference and Exposition, held in Baltimore, Maryland, October 20-23, 2004. Sponsored by the Civil Engineering History and Heritage Committee of ASCE.

This collection contains 17 papers that focus on the civil engineering history of Baltimore, brining to life both landmark engineering works and visionary engineers. Baltimore is a city rich in civil engineering history. It is a port city. It is a railroad city. It is an industrial city. And it is a modern city. Explorations include the Mason-Dixon Line Survey, Maryland Cross-Cut Canal, Federal Hill, Baltimore and Ohio (B&O Railroad) and 1884 Passenger Car Roundhouse, Garrett-Jacobs Mansion in Mount Vernon, and Druid Lake Dam. Several papers examine the lives of prominent engineers and architects who played major roles in developing the region, such as Benjamin Henry Latrobe, Jr. and Robert E. Lee. Other papers address the development of the water supply and wastewater treatment in the city's growth, including the Great Fire of 1904. Two papers illustrate successful efforts at Johns Hopkins University to develop course material for teaching civil engineering history.
