Who is George Mason

George Mason Memorial commemorates the neglected contributions of an important Founding Father.

Who is George Mason - he was author of Virginia Declaration of Rights, which served as inspiration to Thomas Jefferson while drafting the Declaration of Independence.

Perhaps George Mason's greatest act was withholding his signature from the United States Constitution, because it did not abolish the slave trade.

George Mason Memorial is near Thomas Jefferson Memorial.
