Overview

This monument on the road to Friedberg was erected in memory of the 'brave people of Hessen' who fell in battle with the French on 2 December 1792. King Frederick William II of Prussia commissioned the memorial after the battle, and it was completed in 1794 by the sculptor Ruhl, whose frieze is symbolic of the motto 'defence is strength'.
