Photography Monday: FDR Memorial

One of the largest memorials on the National Mall, the FDR Memorial honors Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his story.  In commemoration of FDR’s four terms, the monument is divided into four outdoor “rooms”.

Twenty one FDR quotes are featured throughout the monument.

The memorial honors the memory of one of America’s greatest leaders and the optimism and courage that he shared with his fellow citizens through the ordeals of the Great Depression and World War II.  For more information, please visit this site.

Next week, I will share images of the Washington Monument.
