It is of Milford pink granite and bears in the interior this inscription from the President’s last public address: ‘Let us ever remember that our interest is in concord, not conflict, and that our real eminence rests in the victories of peace, not those of war.’ From the entrance to the grounds to the foot of the mound double driveways 175 ft. in width and 890 ft. long have been constructed. Between the driveways is a lagoon which is constantly filled with fresh water. Long rows of trees flank the lagoon and the driveways. It was erected at a cost of $500,000, all of which was donated by popular subscriptions which came from every part of the Nation, no amount being over 50 cents, the greatest number of subscriptions being 10 cents each.”
