If you have a few extra minutes, walk to the back of the park, look across Pennsylvania Avenue and you'll see the White House

Currently there is some construction in the area, but it should not affect access to the statue.

Maps are queued for generation.

"As pure a son of Liberty as I have ever known."
Thomas Jefferson wrote this about him when he heard of his passing.

A mountain, a school, a bridge, numerous statues, these are a few of the ways he has been memorialized around the world.

So who is he? Let your GPS guide you to the answer.

To confirm your find, please email the owners the answer to these questions.
1. Who shrieked as he fell.
2. What does he hold in his left hand?
3. What animal sits on the Earth?

**** PLEASE NOTE *****
The co-ordinates were ammended on 7/1/04. The initial co-ords obtained using our Etex Legend (N 38 44.006 W 077 02.182) generated maps from both MapQuest & LostOutdoors that appeared to be incorrect. I changed the figures so that the maps now lead you to a point closer to where the ststue is.

It would be appreciated if someone could verify the co-ordionates using a diffenent GPS & let us know if there had been an error in recording the initial co-ords. Extra clue: it's the statue that's closest to Lafayette's.
