Tombstone Tuesday: National Monument to the Forefathers, Plymouth, MA

Because so many of the Mayflower passengers and some of their descendants final resting places are unknown the next best offering to their memories are monuments. 

In Plymouth, Massachusetts there is the National Monument to the Forefathers a very imposing tribute.  I visited this monument in 2003.

This video on You Tube is very good and it explains the monument to some degree and were it is located.  It is a slight bit political:
