Memorials Around The National Mall: A Walking Guide –

Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

The next time you’re in DC, the memorials around the western end of the National Mall (to World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans, Dr. King and Abraham Lincoln) make an architecturally interesting ramble for a morning or afternoon. It might also touch your emotions in unexpected ways.
