Located in our nation's capital... the Jefferson National Memorial is not only a commemoration to our third president, the father of the Declaration of Independence but the core values for which this great nation was founded upon. Inscribed on the panel of the interior northeast wall are these words... "God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?"

Located in the West Potomac park in Washington, DC... the memorial is seen here from across the Potomac River. The Jefferson Memorial was officially dedicated on April 13, 1943... the 200th anniversary of Jefferson's birthday.
