Mobile in Mobile County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
On this Spot Woodrow Wilson Said:
October 27, 1913
—1913 - 1924 —
This is not America because it is rich. This is not America because it has set up for a great population opportunities of material prosperity. I would rather belong to a poor nation that was free than to a rich nation that had ceased to be one with liberty. But we shall not be poor if we love liberty. Because the nation that loves liberty truly lets every man free to do his best and be his best."
Erected 1924 by the Mobile Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.
