Summary

Description
English: A memorial (erected in 1915) for Charles Follen at the Follen Community Church in Lexington, Massachusetts. The text of the tablet reads: "Born in Hesse-Darmstadt, September 4 1796. A fearless advocate of liberty and justice, exiled for conscience sake, he sought in America the freedom denied him in the old world. Distinguished for rich and varied learning, for uncompromising devotion to the cause of the oppressed, and enslaved and for the simplicity and integrity of his character, he organized in this town the Free Christian Church and became its first pastor, designed the Octagon Meeting House here erected, and on his way to its dedication was lost in the burning of the steamboat 'Lexington' on Long Island Sound, January 13, 1840."
