[photo, Maryland Monument, Gettysburg Battlefield, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania] The Governor established the Governor's Commission on Maryland Military Monuments in January 1989 (Executive Order 01.01.1989.02). It was reauthorized later in 1989, 2004, 2008, 2011, and 2016 (Executive Order 01.01.1989.06; Executive Order 01.01.2004.59; Executive Order 01.01.2008.17; Executive Order 01.01.2011.06; Executive Order 01.01.2016.07).

The Commission inventories Maryland military monuments. Each monument is identified by name, date of construction, location, and original sponsorship. Current ownership of both the monument and its site is noted with a complete description of the monument, including its construction materials; condition; theme; inscriptions, if any; and who is responsible for maintenance.

Professional conservators and historic preservationists determine and carry out appropriate treatment for each monument. The Commission also assigns responsibility for maintenance of each monument and prepares educational and tourism materials for public distribution.

Appointed to four-year terms by the Governor, the Commission consists of up to seventeen members. The Secretary of Planning serves as chair.
