National Monument to the Forefathers

Great Monument!! What a great tribute to our founding fathers and the sacrifice that they paid for our freedom! The principles on this monument is what has made our nation great. This monument is a step by step instruction manual for the sustainment of our country. This was the first time that I have seen or heard of this great monument and I am 48 years old. How do you think you got your freedom? From a vending machine?

With all due respect to the RoadsideAmerica.com reviewers, everyone at "Monumental - the Movie" was in awe of her beauty. Born and raised in Massachusetts, I am pleased to say this is one piece of Bay State history to smile about. This is the monument featured in the "Monumental" movie.
