Once commissioned by the City of Frederick, Charles was tasked with creating a drinking fountain for installation in the Carroll Creek Linear Park. Working from images and a few remaining pieces of the original 1911 fountain, Charles proposed this design which would include a bas-relief created by Toby Mendez..
Keeping with the original memorial's tradition, the new fountain would include a pet drinking fountain and be dedicated to the same ideals. These ideals appealled to the Green-walled Garden Club who generously supported the new fountain's creation..
