"A Salute To The War Heroes"

The District of Columbia War Memorial was built in 1931 to honor the 26,000 residents of Washington, D.C., who served the country in World War I. The structure is erected on a 4-foot-high (1.21 meter) circular marble platform and has the names of 499 Washington residents who died in service during World War I inscribed on it. The marble structure measures 47 feet (14.32 meter) in height and 44 feet (13.41) in diameter and was designed by war veteran and architect Frederick H. Brooke. Another interesting fact is that the funds to construct the memorial were provided by the citizens of the District themselves. In 2014, the District of Columbia War Memorial got listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
