Inscription
Knightstown—first town platted on National Road after survey, 1827—named after noted surveyor Jonathan Knight.

Home of American Communications Network founded, in 1966, to preserve and perpetuate the "Ideals that built America" and "the Dignity of Man."

Situated in Henry County, so named for American patriot Patrick Henry by special legislative dictate in 1821.

Why stand here idle! Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery! Forbid it, Almighty God! I know what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! ? —Patrick Henry

Presented in the 200th year of American liberty
