“one of the "Forgotten Founders"”
The George Mason Memorial is a memorial to George Mason in West Potomac Park in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States. It commemorates the contributions of George Mason, an important American Founder who wrote the Virginia Declaration of Rights and served as a delegate to the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Mason is often thought of as the "forgotten Founder."
I'm not normally into history, but this was a particularly well-done and interesting site. It is next door to one of Indiana's oldest churches as well as a beautiful bridge over the Wabash River which was a major Native American trail point and later a major river access point. There's trails and a bit of parkland that add to the enjoyment. A park official was able to let me in to the memorial. Fascinating, and it turned out to be a pivotal point in history, both in set of small skirmishes, but also in deciding to keep it as part of the new-United States.
