NYC - Civic Center: Nathan Hale City Hall Park - Liberty Flag Pole marker

Here in the ancient commons of The City where before the time of our national independence five Liberty Poles were successively set up. This flag pole of 1921 is placed in grateful remembrance of all lovers of our country who have died that the Liberty won on these shores might be the heritage of the world.

 

The Liberty Poles were erected by Colonial Patriots as a form of protest to display their displeasure with the Crown by harassing the military post.
