This Memorial is not crowded. At least not crowded in January. It is a nice memorial and I found it interesting as I felt compelled to read more about George Mason after seeing it. I saw it right after I went to the Jefferson Memorial. It's not on the same scale but it is very nice.

On the south end of the Tidal Basin path, this small but interesting memorial is located. George Mason was very involved in the creation of the Bill of Rights, and this honors him very well. Plenty of seating in the area, it was a nice resting spot for us before we continued on to the Jefferson and Washington Monuments.

I was heading to another tourist spot when I noticed this memorial on the way. What I liked most about it was how nicely decorated the area was with various plants and nature with the George Mason statue at the end of it. If you need a breather during your sightseeing trek of Washington, this would be an ideal place to rest up and learn more about George Mason.

Nearly hidden from view on the path from the Korean War Memorial to the Jefferson Memorial, lies a small tree covered spot with a life-size bronze statue seated upon a bench. At first glance, it appears almost whimsical, much like the modern statuary popping up in parks around the country. I urge you to approach this gentleman, read the tutorials, and develop an appreciation for his great contributions to our country. We are all keenly aware that Thomas Jefferson was the primary author of the Declaration of Independence. Many are aware that James Madison was the principle author of the Constitution. This man, George Mason, bears credit for the Bill of Rights, though was long denied attribution because of his failure to support the new constitution due to its failure to forbid slavery. He is a hero, both in his foresight that provided the foundation for the bill of rights, and the early projection of his abolitionist stance. Stop, read, appreciate, and thank him before moving on.
