| The photographs below show the
statue at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. In the
statue, Mason holds his draft of the Virginia Declaration of
Rights. Written in the spring of 1776, it is one of the most
important documents of the American Revolution. It spells out
virtually all of the basic principles of government and individual
rights that Americans embrace.
