The Roman Fasces of Cincinnati | Statue of Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus

Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, the legendary Roman who defeated the Aequians and rescued the trapped Roan Army. With one hand he returns the fasces, symbol of power and fraternity to the Dictator of Rome. In the other, a plow, which represents his life as citizen and farmer. Cincinnati was named in 1790, after Cincinnatus by Governor Arthur St. Clair, member of the Society of Cincinnati, an order of Revolutionary War Officers whose first President was George Washington (our U.S. 1ˢᵗ POTUS), who himself in his day was likened to Cincinnatus. The fasces, as has been repeatedly stated, was and remains a powerful and positive symbol, that is equally, a United States, Fascist, and Roman symbol that, in our case, embodies the PHILOSOPHY OF REPUBLICANISM, from which our Thought has derived.
