이승만 자유당 정권의 횡포와 부패 실정에 항거하기 위해 일어난 2.28학생민주의거를 기념하기위해 2003년 12월 옛 중앙초등학교가 있던 이 자리에 기념공원을 조성하게 되었다고 합니다.
1960년도 일어난 2.28학생민주의거는 들불처럼 번져 3.15마산의거와 4.19학생혁명을 촉발하였으며 이러한 독재에 맞서는 민주항거 정신은 오늘날 대한민국을 민주국가로 변화시키는 추춧돌이 되었다는 역사적 평가를 받고 있습니다.
대구에서는 이 외에도 2.28학생민주의거뿐 아니라 일제침략기에 국채보상운동을 일으켜 전국민에게 독립정신을 고취하는 등 독립과 민주화를 선구한 자랑스러운 역사를 가지고 있습니다.

This is an overview of Korea

Korea is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world with over five thousand years of history. According to the original creation myth, the world we live in today is the work of the Heavenly Prince Hwanung, whose father was the King of Heaven.

The Heavenly Prince asked his father to give him some land to govern, so the Father sent him down to Mount Taebaek. With him the Prince brought the Minister of Clouds, the Earl of Rain and the Chancellor of Wind. They also brought three thousand helpers.

Under the shade of a sandalwood tree the Prince founded a holy city called Sinsi, the City of God. He put his Ministers in charge of three hundred and sixty areas of human culture, teaching them to grow crops and to make laws concerning what is good and what is evil.

A tiger and a bear living in a nearby cave saw this city and desperately wanted to become human. Every day they came to the sandalwood tree at the center of the city to pray fervently for becoming humans.

Hwanung saw their devotion and gave them instructions to remain in the cave and fast for one month, eating nothing but garlic and mugwort. The tiger was too impatient to stand the long and boring days in the cave, so he gave up and left, but Bear maintained the fast. At the end of the month she was transformed into a beautiful woman who became the mother of the Korean people.

Her first son was Don-gun, the First King of the Korean people. When Don-Gun passed on the throne to his own son, he became a Mountain God. It is interesting that mountain gods are still worshipped today in Korea.
