First Division Monument, Washington D. C. Reviews
One of the interesting things near the White House is the First Division Monument situated at 17th and E Street, just south of the Eisenhower Building. Constructed in 1924, here you will see a single standing column that is topped by a gilded figure of the Lady of Victory. It is a simple, touching and respectable tribute to the valiant soldiers who participated and those to perished during World War I. You can conveniently see this monument if visiting the area attractions or when making your way between the White House and the National Mall.
A striking monument just around the corner from the White House. The Old Executive Office Building serves as an excellent backdrop.
Another nice monument here in DC
