Because of his mixed record on racial issues, monuments to Key have been defaced, and critics have called for institutions named after him to be renamed.

In 2017, vandals defaced the Francis Scott Key Monument in Baltimore with red paint and spray-painted “Racist Anthem” and “blood on his hands.”

Investigators are still searching for the remains of the six people who fell in the water at the time of the Key bridge’s collapse.

The search, as well as the cleanup process, is expected to finish before any rebuilding of the bridge begins.

Maryland Governor Wes Moore (D) toured the area of the destroyed bridge in the rain with the U.S. Coast Guard on Wednesday afternoon.

President Biden also addressed the disaster on Tuesday, saying he wants the federal government to pay for the bridge’s rebuilding.
