I like how the author provided several different quotes from several different sources about the former governor. I really liked how he listed some of Schaefer's biggest achievements throughout Baltimore and how he never gave up on them until they were completed. The author should of included a little sentence or two about how he died, I mean afterall isn't his death the reason this article was even written?Before reading this article I had no idea who the former governor was. I've walked passed his statue many of times and thought it was just a normal statue, little did I know the statute was just another representation of a man who changed the world.
