THE STORY OF THE BUCKET...
As a child, Washington cast his bucket into a spring on the Burroughs Plantation so that he could offer as much needed relief to the workers struggling in the tobacco fields. As an adult in his speech at the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta in 1895, Washington encouraged all Americans to "cast down their buckets" among one another to ensure the prosperity and protection of this country. Understanding that we depend on each other, The Friends of Booker T. Washington National Monument use the bucket to symbolize our efforts to protect and preserve the resources at the National Park and the legacy of Booker T. Washington.
