Our Trip

On the trip to Washington D.C. I visited many memorials , museums, and monuments. I even got to go on a dinner cruise!

Memorials

The Lincoln Memorial was designed during the Civil War by Daniel Chester French. It shows how Lincoln held the Union together and the advanced cause of human liberty and equality.This statue is 19 feet tall and was built in 1914.


The Jefferson Memorial was constructed in 1941 by a man named Rudolph Evans. It was intended to represent the Age of Enlightenment and Jefferson as a philosopher and statesman.
