Lincoln and Jefferson Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial built in 1922 was to heal national divisions created by the civil war. The monument consists of 36 columns, one for each of the states in the Union at the time of Lincoln's death. The Jefferson Memorial was designed by John Paul Pope in 1925 and constructed in 1939-1943 in honor of Jefferson's great accomplishments in life such as being a founding father, father of electricity, a president, and much more.

War Memorials

The two favorite memorials of the trip were Iwo Jima and World War II. The Iwo Jima memorial is to honor the marines who lost their lives in one of the most historical battles of World War II. The World War II memorial is to honor the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S. during WWII, the more than 400,000 who died, and the millions supporting the war effort from home.

U.S. Capitol

Smithsonian Museum



My two favorite Smithsonian Museums were the Holocaust, and Natural History. The holocaust museum teaches about the life of a young boy and gives a realistic walk-through of his every day life. The Museum of Natural History teaches us about pre-historic animals and the way they lived and looked.
