SUPREME COURT JUSTICES

“The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word
of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this
world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it
and to regulate your life by its precepts.” - John
Jay: First Chief Justice
“Providence has given to our people the choice of
their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the
privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to
select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” - John
Jay: First Chief Justice
“Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon
the authority of that law which is Divine. … Far
from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are
twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed,
these two sciences run into each other.”
- James Wilson: Original Justice on the U.S.
Supreme Court
“One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal
jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the
Common Law. … There never has been a period in
which the Common Law did not recognize
Christianity as lying at its foundations. … I verily
believe Christianity necessary to the support of civil
society.”
- Joseph Story: U.S. Supreme Court Justice

“IT IS THE DUTY OF ALL NATIONS TO
ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROVIDENCE OF
ALMIGHTY GOD ...

, to obey His will, to be grateful for
His benefts, and humbly to implore His protection
and favor.”

- George Washington

“We have no government armed with power
capable of contending with human passions
unbridled by morality and religion. Our
Constitution was made only for a moral and
religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the
government of any other.”

- John Adams

“Before any man can be considered as a member
of civil society, he must be considered as a subject
of the Governor of the Universe.” -

James Madison

“And can the liberties of a nation be thought
secure when we have removed their only frm
basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that
these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are
not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I
tremble for my country when I refect that God is
just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” -

Thomas Jeferson

“Is it not that in the chain of human events, the
birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the
birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading
event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is
it not that the Declaration of Independence frst
organized the social compact on the foundation of
the Redeemer’s mission upon earth? That it laid the
cornerstone of human government upon the frst
precepts of Christianity?”

- John Quincy Adams

About LSG Landscape Architecture And Why We Hired Them to Design the Allen County War Memorial.

The Right Choice:

We believe their design philosophy, experience, especially in "place making" and Memorial Design, capabilities of their designers, standing/reputation among their peers and the world at large as well as past and current projects in several venues and fields of expertise make them uniquely qualified to "Make A Place and a Memorial" for the type of memorial we want to build.

Allen County Veterans Memorial Foundation - The Memorial Design

Introduction to David Nordens Masters Thesis position.
A Constructivist Model for Public War Memorial Design that Facilitates Dynamic Meaning Making

Modern war memorials are markers of memory and history within our cultural landscape. They are a type of place that embrace meanings in their design to remind and foster understanding among members of a community that they represent. My position in this document is that war memorial designers should implement constructivist-based design strategies, and specifically elements supporting ‘active physical interaction.’ These strategies will be used to create places that facilitate visitors taking an active and personal role in their making of meaning. This facilitation is through a dynamic relationship unique between each user and the site but also within a range of expected messages provided by the designer and the clients he represents. Elements in a design characteristic of active physical interaction are based largely in constructivist philosophy and its application in educational pedagogy. Constructivist epistemology explains how people create knowledge and meaning in their world. The purpose of the construtivist connection is a direct one. If this theory of knowing the ‘world’ and creating knowledge is accepted, and it is accepted that memorials are intentional and important features of human identity, then the constructivist pedagogy can be applied in significant ways by a memorial designer to better facilitate the connection of meanings with the visitor.
