 USA Washington DC Slate Guide to Americas Front Lawn

English

A visitor to Washington, D.C., in 1905 would have found precisely one memorial on the National Mall: the Washington Monument. A hundred years later, the Mall hosts nine major memorials, commemorating five presidents and four wars. That's a lot of history packed into a relatively small space.

Visitors can find much of that history in guidebooks, but what about the memorials themselves? How well do their designs serve the memories of famous men (and only men so far) and bitter conflicts? Slate's latest audio tour allows you to take the thoughts of our architecture critic, Witold Rybczynski, with you the next time you visit the Mall. He'll be your personal and candid guide to the good and the not-so-good efforts to immortalize America's heroes.

There are several ways to take the tour. Of course, if you're planning a visit to D.C. anytime soon, the best way is to load the free audio tour onto your iPod or other MP3 player and take it to the Mall. (It's easy to find the different stops on the tour with our downloadable map.)
