A unique angle to view the monument commemorating the First Division of the American Expeditionary Force in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Operation Desert Storm. This statue is called "Winged Victory," and was designed by Daniel Chester French in 1924. It is gold plated bronze, and sits 65 feet above the street atop a column of pink Massachusetts granite. The statue is located near the White House in front of the Old Executive Office Building (which is a classy piece of architecture itself, if you ever get the chance to take some quality admiration time).
In just over two minutes, Abraham Lincoln delivered these immortal words, which now greet visitors to his memorial engraved into the wall. This photograph is a close-up of the engraving at the Lincoln Memorial.
