Just got home from spending a few hours
going around Newark and taking more photo's. There are two small
stone markers in the far corner of Lincoln Park going toward Washington
Street from Broad Street that I've been meaning to check out for
the past several months.
You can tell that there was once a marker on one of the stones,
but like many others here in Newark, it is "MISSING."
The other stone has a wonderful story on it which reads as follows:
CEDAR TREES OF LEBANON
Presented to the City Of Newark by the Lebanon American Society
of New Jersey on May 13, 1939 as a memorial to the American Soldiers
who made the Supreme Sacrifice in the Cause of Liberty in the World
These trees were transported from the forests of Lebanon as a living
tribute to the Lebanese of Newark in their adopted City and Country.
