This is only a short walk away from the Liberty Bell and is worth every step to take to get there. If you are in the area stop by and reflect and relax in the beautiful park that this is in!

This is worth a few minutes if you are visiting Independence Hall or the Liberty Bell, it is only a few blocks away in a beautiful park. A simple memorial and a good reminder of the sacrifices made.
