1. Old Glory Marker
Inscription.  
I am the star spangled banner conceived in 1777
out of the love America bore for liberty and honor

I am the memorial of countless heroes who shed
their blood to preserve this sacred heritage

I have inspired generations of gallant men

I am the spirit of valley forge of sacrifice-of courage

I have guarded every rampart where freedom
defined its glorious cause in all wars

I fly wherever Americans gave their lives to
preserve the sanctity of life

My home is in the hearts of all who feel a
thrill of pride when they salute me
and what I symbolize

God, country, freedom, valor

 
Erected 2006.
