With the Capitol Building in the background and the Washington Monument down the other end. It really is a beautiful Memorial and very striking. Well worth a visit and a look at all the beautiful statues.

A fantastic statue and monument. I have seen is so much on television, I wanted to see it close up. Great history. Amazing how these are made and with such detail. Great area to sit and rest, look over the pond and photos.
