We were just strolling around the area of the Reflecting Pool and, basically, just stumbled upon this Memorial. To access the Memorial, you cross a small wooden bridge onto an island. There are 56 stone blocks, each with a facsimile of the signer's actual signature....More

This is a pretty area to sit down while visiting the national mall. I wouldn't call it a must see attraction for a short visit.
