Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean, and WWII: War Commemorations

The American stories of World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, and American Civil War --in the form of homage to Abraham Lincoln-- are told in four very different ways. Experience these complex and deep memorials to Lincoln and American war veterans.

This tour will focus on how each memorial is a unique interpretation of large scale war and loss. At the Lincoln Memorial, the tour will also touch on how it has been used outside of the realm of memorialization for protest, public gathering, and ceremony.

The tour starts here (5 Lincoln Memorial Circle SW; adjacent to the Bikeshare station).
