As the setting sun trades places with the silvery moon, the sights along the National Mall take on a whole new light on this eye-opening walking tour through history. There's a little something for everyone, whether your tastes run to neoclassical architecture, modern sculpture, haunting remembrances of war, historical insights or funny stories. Over the course of this two-hour tour, your entertaining and informative guide will set the scene for the Federal City's original plans to memorialize national heroes. Then, they will show you how those plans have evolved over time from the traditional statue of a triumphant general on his horse to modern structures that honor ordinary soldiers and depict less glorious aspects of battle. You'll find the process of planning a memorial is often filled with drama, but the results can be stunning. As you watch the lights come up in DC, you'll see and discuss memorials from throughout history, including the National World War II Memorial, District of Columbia War Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Abraham Lincoln Memorial. The Washington Monument and Thomas Jefferson Memorial are seen and discussed from a distance.
