We walked around and read what was on the memorial. This was specifically for the D.C. Patriots. So it is not well attended and sort of out of the way. But is shows the respect thay they have for their heroes.

You could almost miss this memorial, as it stands off to the side amongst some trees, and may not be as grand as the other memorials in the National Mall. This circular structure with columns holding up a domed roof honors the Washington residents who...More

It is hidden in the trees and not on the main drag of the National Mall. Easy to miss even if you knew to look for it. The memorial lists the names of 499 Washingtonians who died in WWI and is the only memorial for...More
