Washington Square

210 West Washington Square, Philadelphia, PA 19106

 

Washington Square is the location where the unknown soldier of the Revolutionary War is buried. It is named for George Washington.

Closely associated with true patriotism is the recognition that human life is often required for liberty. The Christian spirit of the American founding era can be found in Jesus’ teaching in John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (KJV). This verse is a fitting description of the hero who paid the ultimate price so that others might live in liberty.
