Photography Monday: Washington Monument
The Washington Monument towers above the city that bears his name, serving as an awe-inspiring reminder of George Washington’s greatness. The monument, like the man , stands in no one’s shadow. Designed by Robert Mills and eventually completed by Thomas Casey and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, it honors and memorializes George Washington at the center of the nation’s capital.
George Washington’s military and political leadership were indispensable to the founding of the United States. The Washington Monument embodies the awe, respect, and gratitude the nation felt for its most essential Founding Father. For more information, please visit this site.
Next week, we will tour Washington, D.C. at night.
