The World War II Memorial in Washington DC

By
Real Estate Agent with Ellicott City Clarksville Howard County Maryland Real Estate 535650

The newest Monument on the Mall in Washington DC is the World War II Memorial. It sits between the Washington Memorial and the  Lincoln Memorial.

The World War II Memorial is an oval shape with two 43-foot arches, representing the war's Atlantic and Pacific theaters. Fifty-six pillars represent the states, territories and the District of Columbia at the time of the war. Two sculpted bronze wreaths adorn each pillar. Small fountains sit at the bases of the two arches. Waterfalls surround a wall of 4,000 gold stars, each one represents 100 U.S. deaths in the war. More than two-thirds of the memorial consists of grass, plants and water. A circular garden, called the "Circle of Remembrance," is enclosed by a two-foot-high stone wall.


During a visit to Washington to see the Cherry Blossoms we took in a few of the other sights. Here is a video of the Memorial. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I look forward to seeing it in May when I'm in Washington for the NAR meetings.

Good luck and success.

Ellie - That is a stunning memorial.  I had no idea the nation's capital has been adding or renovating monuments.  I'm curious - Did they use stimulus dollars for these projects?
