George Mason Memorial, Washington, DC

First of all, what an awesome statue. They didn’t depict him as a deific figure towering over man, no, they have him relaxed, accessible, and reading a book. George Mason is an underappreciated founding father. Although he was there at the signing of the constitution, you will not find his name on it. Why? Because this awesome, progressive man, refused to sign it because it did not abolish slavery. Awesome, awesome guy!
