” The monument, which faces northeast to Plymouth Harbor (and, roughly, towards Plymouth, England), sits in the center of a circular drive, which is accessed from Allerton Street from the east. The plan of the principal pedestal is octagonal, with four small, and four large faces; from the small faces project four buttresses. On the main pedestal stands the heroic figure of “Faith” with her right hand pointing toward heaven and her left hand clutching the Bible. Upon the four buttresses also are seated figures emblematical of the principles upon which the Pilgrims founded their Commonwealth; counter-clockwise from the east are Morality, Law, Education, and Liberty. Each was carved from a solid block of granite, posed in the sitting position upon chairs with a high relief on either side of minor characteristics. Under “Morality” stand “Prophet” and “Evangelist”; under “Law” stand “Justice” and “Mercy”; under “Education” are “Youth” and “Wisdom”; and under “Liberty” stand “Tyranny Overthrown” and “Peace”. On the face of the buttresses, beneath these figures are high reliefs in marble, representing scenes from Pilgrim history. Under “Morality” is “Embarcation”; under “Law” is “Treaty”; under “Education” is “Compact”; and under “Freedom” is “Landing”. Upon the four faces of the main pedestal are large panels for records. The front panel is inscribed as follows: “National Monument to the Forefathers. Erected by a grateful people in remembrance of their labors, sacrifices and sufferings for the cause of civil and religious liberty.” The right and left panels contain the names of those who came over in the Mayflower. The rear panel, which was not engraved until recently, contains a quote from Governor William Bradford‘s famous history, Of Plymouth Plantation:+
- “Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by His hand that made all things of nothing and gives being to all things that are; and as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation; let the glorious name of Jehovah have all praise.”
I had never heard of this Monument in my life until my mother shared a movie starring Kirk Cameron called:.Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasures If you were like me, I suggest watching the movie.
It made me wonder why I had never heard of this Monument before. Why has this piece of history been left to a need to know basis in our schools, churches, and media? Is it a national secret?
I think a closer look at the Monument shows the true intent to hide America’s True Beginning. This shows a blueprint for freedom. That is how this humble servant of God decerns it. It is an Amazing piece of work.
If you Google the first Monument in America this comes on the top of the page: DEVIL’S Tower? Coincidence? You, decide. Notice the man who did it, just saying!
This is Real history! Please ask your children if they have ever heard of this Monument. This should be taught in U.S.History in our schools not the 5 Pillars of Islam!!
Did you catch that? These were the first here!!! This is what they believed!! This is what they came out to do. Do not let modern day “experts,”tell you ever again that this did not start out as a Christian Country. This is the seed that started America. Anyone saying different is an agent of lawlessness!! They are UnAmerican and do not have We The People’s true interest at heart.
I welcome any and all criticism from you ” Modern Thinkers”. I will shred you with Truth! “Let the Glorious name of Jehovah have All the Praise” Does not get more Christian than that. This was the seed of America and what made it prosper. Those that hide this and attack it are not doing it for the Glory of Jehovah.
It is time to stop the nonsense and to stop lying about history. Now they are tearing down history in America because of feelings? No, the motive is much more sinister. It comes from the Black Liberation Theory that All whites and only whites are guilty of slavery. I will be following this article up by one exposing modern day slavery. There are more slaves in the world no than any other time in History. Whites own a very small percentage and very, very small still here in America.
I hope you learned something today and if you already knew about this Monument God Bless!!~RJH
