... dates or years. The nation at war exhibition also seemed more than a little imbalanced. Three rooms told the story of the American Revolution and big Abe freeing all the slaves (take a look at Memphis for a different perspective on that), one panel covered the use of the atom bomb, one room covered the Vietnam war and strangely made no mention of the use of Agent Orange at all. Mattie did enjoy the cars in the history of transport (11) but Susie was even more annoyed by a exhibit ...

There is one nurse who is kneeling behind with her head hung, bearing the weight of the war on her shoulders for all of the women at home who have husbands or sons fighting the war. We saw Lincoln's memorial which is quite famous and took some photos. Finally we went to the White House and took photos. I thought this would be so much bigger than what it was. The East wing ...

... Americans do this **** well.

The Lincoln Memorial is made primarily of marble and limestone and there are 36 columns around the memorial which represented the states in the Union at the time of Lincoln's death. The Lincoln Memorial is located at one end of the 'Reflecting Pool' and looks back at the Washington Monument. It's a very popular stop for tourists, thats for sure.

I crossed the road to take a look at the Potomac River and the view across ...
