Video: World's Tallest Tribute to Freedom

In Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the world's tallest tribute to freedom is an awe-inspiring memorial honoring our great country and all the men and women who served to protect the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.

If you have never seen the world's tallest tribute to freedom - North America's tallest flagpole featuring a huge American flag - then you must check out this video below.

It is truly a symbol of freedom, a symbol of hope, and a symbol of inspiration as the man who conceived it hoped it would be.

The flagpole is 400 feet tall. It is constructed of 353,000 pounds of steel and coated with 500 gallons of paint. It's base is a 70 foot wide by 10 foot deep concrete foundation. In that foundation, you will find 55 tons of rebar which would reach almost 6 miles long if laid end to end.

The American flag flying from North America's tallest flagpole is 7,200 square feet and four stories tall.

The top section of the flagpole rotates with the wind which keeps the enormous flag flying outward.

At the base of the flagpole is a monument that honors all veterans from Sheboygan County Wisconsin who have been killed in action from the Civil War to the present.

The world's tallest tribute to freedom was dedicated on June 16, 2014.

Make sure to watch the video as you will be amazed at the work put into creating such a beautiful tribute to our country and the people who protect it.

Go U.S.A.

Every state should show this type of support and tribute.
