Momuments for Korea-America Centenial Relationship

이 탑은 인천 자유공원에 있는 탑이다. 아래는 이 탑 주변에 소개되어 있는 내용이다.

한미수호통상조약은 1882년 5월 22일 대조선국 전권대관 신헌과 대미국 전권대신 로버트 윌슨 슈펠트와의 사이에 제물포 화도진 언덕에서 조인 체결되었다. 이 조약은 그로부터 전개되는 모든 한미 양국관계의 발전에 가장 기본적이며 역사적인 시발점이 되었다.

과거 100년 동안 한미 양국은 여러 내외 정세의 변화와 굴절에 대응하면서 정치 외교 경제 군사 문화에 결처 양국 간의 우호 친선과 공동의 이익을 위한 협력관계를 추구 유지해 왔고 발전시켜 왔다. 특히 자유와 평화, 정의와 인도, 신의와 평등의 추구를 통한 세계 인류 공동의 이상과 목표의 실현을 위해서, 보다 더 긴밀하고 공고한 유대와 협력을 위해서 양국은 뜨거운 혈맹의 관계를 맺기에 이르렀다.

한미수호조약 체결 100주년을 맞이하여 그 역사적 의미를 재음미하고 앞으로의 양국과 양국 국민의 상호 신뢰와 우호 협력관계의 지속적인 발전과 전진을 희구하는 표징으로 여기 유서 깊은 이 고장에 기념탑을 세운다.

More About 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.Text by Steve Smith.
