Washington, DC — Capital of the United States of America, heart and center of the Land of Liberty. The city is a reflection of the country’s history, achievements and aspirations. On the National Mall are some of America’s finest monuments and memorials — each a reminder of the ideals that our country stands for, and the men and women who fought for them.
The Washington Monument, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and the newest — Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial – honor leaders and ideals of American freedom, democracy and equality. The World War 2, Korean War and Vietnam War Memorials pay tribute to the men and women who have paid the ultimate price for America’s freedom.
