Lincoln Memorial

Highly recommended
From this stately memorial the famous marble likeness of a seated, brooding Lincoln stares across the Reflecting Pool to the Washington Monument and to the Capitol beyond. On the southwest side of the monument, Arlington Memorial Bridge serves as a symbolic link between Lincoln and the South's great hero, Robert E. Lee, whose home, Arlington House, overlooks the monument from the Virginia bluffs. Along the same axis is positioned the eternal flame marking the Arlington gravesite of President John F. Kennedy (the flame is visible from the rear of the memorial).
