Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C.

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on June 19, 2006 at the end of the Mall in Washington, D.C.

This impressive classical structure is visible from far away.
On the sides of the steps, the "fascio" bundles hark back to ancient Rome and symbolize strength in unity. There is no connection with Moussolini's Italy intended.
Inside, we tourists all jockey for positions to get photos of the statue without photographing each other.
On the left, tourists cool off below the Gettysburg Address. I could not get a good shot of the mural above.
On the right, we can read Lincoln's second inaugural address. Again, no mural.
