With a professional photographer and licensed tour guide leading the way on this three-hour walking tour, you'll visit three contrasting memorials framing the city's western border that remind us civil wars, domestic and foreign, are always paid for in blood. The Vietnam Wall serves as a vivid reminder of the 58,282 deceased soldiers, whose names are etched in black marble. A Greek temple is the site of celebrations and demonstrations since its 1922 dedication to the nation's greatest president - Abraham Lincoln. The Korean War Memorial shows 19 life-sized soldiers walking through a field, their eyes everywhere to detect the enemy. Their reflections in the black marble wall add 19 more to their numbers to reach 38 -- as in the 38th Parallel on which the border between North and South Korea sits. You'll also see the newly-renovated Lincoln Reflecting Pool, the World War II Memorial, D.C. World War I Memorial and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. As an added bonus, if Mother Nature plays nice and the cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin are still in bloom, you'll get great tips on capturing the best photographs of those beautiful pale pink petals.
