Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial in Washington DC

One of the newest memorials in Washington DC is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial located next to the National Mall. Dedicated on September 17, 2020 the memorial is designed to honor Dwight D. Eisenhower, as the 34th President of the United States and Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces during WWII.

The Eisenhower memorial features a large park lined with trees next to bronze statues of Eisenhower’s leadership and a massive mesh tapestry backing the entire memorial. The mesh tapestry represented the Normandy coastline.

There is a bronze heroic-size statue of Eisenhower as the 34th president and another large bronze statue of him as Supreme Commander.
