Not So Wordless Wednesday- Myles Standish Monument

Captain Myles Standish, (abt. 1584 - 1656)
Mayflower passenger and military leader
My, 8x great grandfather

The Myles Standish Monument

Duxbury, Massachusetts

Strangely, this statue on top of the monument depicts

Myles Standish in a steepled Puritan style hat, not a helmet

This little racoon lives in the hollow tree near the parking area

Look for him the next time you are here!

  1. I'm the 14th generation of Myles Standish. I didn't know he had a monument. This is fascinating. Thank you for sharing.
