Additional comments.
1. Further explanation of additional photo #2
The symbols on the monument appear to be a representation of the New Jersey state coat of arms. The shield has three plows with a horse's head above it. The two women represent the goddesses of Liberty and Agriculture. A ribbon at the bottom includes the year of independence 1776; and reads Liberty and Prosperity.
