In keeping with the American tradition that men will defend freedom with both ideas and arms, this plaque is presented to Fort Jay by the Association of the Alumni of Columbia College to memorialize the fact that in 1794 students and faculty of Columbia worked with shovel and barrows to help erect this fort, named after John Jay, Columbia graduate of the Class of 1764, whose life exemplified the best traditions of free men.
