|Thomas Jefferson Memorial|
We headed to the FDR Memorial. It is the largest memorial in the Capital and is made up of 4 outdoor rooms representing each of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's terms in office.
There are a number of sculptures including the one of FDR in his wheelchair. There is also one of Eleanor Roosevelt standing before the United Nation Flag which honors her dedication to the UN. It is the only Presidential Memorial to depict a First Lady.
Interesting that this is the one Memorial that dogs are allow to enter. A park ranger said she likes to think that the memory of Fala has something to do with it.
We also stopped at the Martin Luther King that wasn't here when we were here before. We only had time to take a few pictures as dogs aren't allow in this Memorial though it is outdoors. It is a tribute to the famous civil rights worker that is near where he gave his "I have a dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial.
We again walked along the Tidal Basin and looked at another memorial, this one to George Mason.. He was one of American's founders and wrote the Virginia Declaration of Rights. He did not sign the Constitution as it didn't abolish slave trade.
A good first day in DC.
