President Wants National Garden of American Heroes

His executive order wants garden ready by July 4, 2026.

Decrying the destruction of American monuments and statues, President Trump announced the establishment of an executive order to create a National Garden of American Heroes that he described as a “vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live.”

His order mandates the creation of a task force under the Secretary of the Interior, which will develop plans for establishing the garden. According to the order, the garden is to be available for public access no later than July 4, 2026, the 250th anniversary of the proclamation of the Declaration of Independence.

The garden will include, but is not limited to, statues of John Adams, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Daniel Boone, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Henry Clay, Davy Crockett, Frederick Douglass, Amelia Earhart, Benjamin Franklin, Billy Graham, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Douglas MacArthur, Dolley Madison, James Madison, Christa McAuliffe, Audie Murphy, George S. Patton, Jr., Ronald Reagan, Jackie Robinson, Betsy Ross, Antonin Scalia, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington, George Washington, and Orville and Wilbur Wright, the order said. Of these individuals, the executive order states “none will have lived perfect lives, but all will be worth honoring, remembering, and studying.”

His executive order also includes protections of the monuments and statues across the country that are a part of “our collective national memory” for future generations.
