Wordish Wednesday 05/18/11: Morristown Green Statues
The Morristown Green is a town square that has played a very important part of the legend of historic Morristown, New Jersey, since 1715. It has seen military encampments and even public executions. It is currently a public park where many cultural events take place.
The photo above and the first two photos below show a statue of George Washington (who was all over the Morristown area during the Revolutionary War), Alexander Hamilton, and the Marquis De Lafayette discussing France's role in the new nation.
There is also a statue -- complete with colonial flag waving nearby - paying touching tribute to those who have joined the New Jersey Militia to fight for their nation -- also those left behind. It says:
Patriots Farewell. A tribute to the New Jersey Militia and families whose sacrifices created a strong and enduring nation.
