Description EN

Robert Alphonso Taft (September 8, 1889 - July 31, 1953), of the Taft political family of Ohio, was a Republican United States Senator and as a prominent conservative spokesman was the leading opponent of the New Deal in the Senate from 1939 to 1953. He led the successful effort by the Conservative coalition to curb legal favoritism for labor unions but failed in his quest to win the Presidential nomination of the candidate of the Republican Party in 1940, 1948 and 1952.

I discovered this memorial while on a "virtual tour" of Washington and thought it would make good one.

There is a LOG PASSWORD for this cache (AABBBB).

AA=number of stars around the eagle on east side
BBBB=last name of Vice President of the foundation (CAPS)

This cache was originally listed on TerraCaching.com.  Based on the news of their impending shutdown, it will now be exclusively listed on OpenCaching US. 

Thanks to Gecko Dad for pointing a rather significant error with the original listing, that no other finder had pointed out AND for reminding me of it when I had not addressed it.
