Live Free or Die

American Revolution Bicentennial 1776-1976

In honor of the first New Hampshire

regiment whose men fought so gallantly

under the able leadership of Gen. John Stark

and especially those who gave their lives

during the American Revolution… So that

we may live in freedom.

We pledge to preserve these basic freedoms.

Nashua

This historical landmark has a dedicated plaque on the back side reading:

Dedicated this thirteenth day of June 1976

by the Rotary Club of Nashua

in cooperation with the

American Revolution

Bicentennial  Committee

of Greater Nashua

This monument is located at the Bicentennial Park along the River Walk Main Street Nashua, New Hampshire.

New Hampshire became the 9th state  on 12 June 1788. I post this in honor of Memorial Day 2013. Thank you to all who have served, are serving and will serve our country protecting our basic right to freedom.

May we remember all who gave the ultimate sacrifice for that freedom.

Be safe this Memorial Day weekend.
