A statue we came across while looking at the more famous Washington landmarks. Had heard of his name but never knew what he was famous for. We found him to be an interesting man, hope you do too.

To confirm a find, please answer these questions. The answers can be found on the statue.
1. What is his famous quote?
2. Read what he did first. What are the last three words of that phrase?

If you have time, walk over to the water. You will see another of Washingtons Monuments in the distance.

P.S. For the NGS Benchmark hunters out there, benchmark HV1848 is located in close proximity.

I don't now what happened to my first log so this is my second attempt. Nice place as we were walking the mall in DC. I was able to get this one pretty easily. Thanks!

Here's another find more than 3 years later. I've driven by this location hundreds of times over the decades, but this is the first time I walked to the island. Thanks for finally getting me over there.

Checking out the National Mall this evening. Would have most likely missed this if it weren't for the TC. TFTC.

My 6th exclusive NC cache find.

ANOTHER FTF!!! I'll just say, it was a hoot to get this after 5 years! I wonder how many cachers have gone to DC to hunt "all the virtuals" and walked right by here. The spot does deserve to be a virtual, but also deserves more attention from the community.

This was our last stop before returning to the Washington Monument for the "Above the City" virtual. Thanks!
