“I’m very, very thankful for the Bunker Hill monument association, and for the honour they have done me in the appointment of me as an honorary member of that body. The occasion [the first major battle of the Revolution), which had given birth to, it is an important milestone in the history of the human race, and worthy of the magnificent ceremonies, of which the first stone was laid for the last time, and it was dedicated,” Jefferson wrote. “The combination of circumstances was it allowed to be put in place by the hand of the one distinguished [the Marquis de Lafayette, in his participation in the toils and dangers which followed the event, it signalizes.”
