I was recently in DC and had some time to kill so I visited the Botanical gardens. While there I walked to this monument and it was made for pictures with a back drop of the Capitol behind.

With the Capitol Building in the background and the Washington Monument down the other end. It really is a beautiful Memorial and very striking. Well worth a visit and a look at all the beautiful statues.

A fantastic statue and monument. I have seen is so much on television, I wanted to see it close up. Great history. Amazing how these are made and with such detail. Great area to sit and rest, look over the pond and photos.

Another Memorial in front of the Capitol which represent one of the American history war. A couple of statues here in front of the lake. The place is ideal for a photo for the national mall area in a panoramic view
