WW I Monument

The World War I Memorial – in color

The World War I memorial, taken toward evening in early spring. The grass is obviously getting green but the trees haven’t come into leaf yet. Once the trees have gotten their leaves, the memorial is all but invisible from the road behind it.

This is still one of my favorite monuments on the Mall because of its simplicity, and because it is doing double-duty – there is no national World War I monument, so this monument to the fallen from the District of Columbia stands for all the soldiers and sailors of that conflict.
