Washington Reflects

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 2 June 2021 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Washington Monument shines in the National Mall Reflecting Pool in Washington, DC.

The Washington Monument was built between 1848 and 1884 as a tribute to George Washington's military leadership from 1775-1783 during the American Revolution. Its construction took place in two major phases, 1848-58, and 1876-84. A lack of funds, political turmoil, and uncertainty about the survival of the American Union caused the intermittent hiatus.
