District of Columbia War Memorial

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   District of Columbia War Memorial
District of Columbia War Memorial
Elements of Design
A fourth war memorial is not so well known or as frequently visited. It was the first war memorial erected in West Potomac Park and the only local District War Memorial on the National Mall.

The DC War Memorial (officially the District of Columbia War Memorial) commemorates citizens of the District of Columbia who served in World War I Dedicated on Armistice Day (November 11) in 1931 by President Herbert Hoover, the memorial has the names of 449 District of Columbia citizens who lost their lives in World War I inscribed on the base. A cornerstone preserves a list of 26,000 Washingtonians who served in the war.
