This monument marks the first burying groundin Plymouth of the passengers of the Mayflower
Here, under cover of darkness, the fast dwindling company laid their dead, leveling the earth above them lest the Indians should learn how many were the graves.Reader History records no nobler venture for faith and freedom than that of this Pilgrim band. In weariness and painfulness, in watching often, in hunger and cold they laid the foundations of a state wherein every man, through countless ages, should have liberty to worship God in his own way. May their example inspire thee to do thy part in perpetuating and spreading the lofty ideals of our republic throughout the world.
