The Forefathers Monument Explained

The Forefathers Monument Explained

At 81 feet tall and 180 tons, it is thought to be the world’s largest solid granite monument. The National Monument to the Forefathers, formerly known as the Pilgrim Monument, commemorates the Mayflower Pilgrims and honors their Christian ideals and values. The ‘matrix of liberty’ combines those ideals and values of Faith, Morality, Law, Education, and Liberty, that when adhered to creates a free society for the people, and by the people.

The Monument was commissioned by the Pilgrim Society, built with public funding, and designed by Hammatt Billings. It is located on Allerton Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts and was dedicated on August 1, 1889. The forefathers’ matrix of liberty is the only successful strategy of liberty ever carried out in the history of mankind.
