Long Description:
On the southwest corner of the intersection Hennepin Avenue and 1st Street S. is a large flag pole that was presented to the city as a tribute to George Washington by the Daughters of the American Revolution. The base of the flag pole is red granite. Standing in front of the flag pole so you can see the sideview bust of Washington on a bronze plaque above the engraving of his name: "George Washington." This is the north side of the monument. The west side (to the right as you face the pole) is engraved: "He built his monument in our hearts. He united us under one flag." On the south side of the flag pole(the back of the base)are two engravings. The upper one reads, "Presented to the city of Minneapolis as a tribute to George Washington." The lower engraving says, "By the Monument Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution - July the Fourth, A.D. 1917." The east side of the pole (on the left when facing toward the front where the name is) is engraved with: "Vindicate our rights with firmness and cultivate peace with sincerity."
