Lincoln Memorial
The Lincoln Memorial has designed after the Temple of Zeus. It is located across from the Reflective Pool. On either side of Lincoln you will find his Inaugural Address and the speech at Gettysburg.

This tour was designed in 1978 to celebrate the country’s bicentennial. It was so popular that it still remains today. Besides a look at the four military branches – the Navy, Air Force, Army, and Marine Corps, the Pentagon tour also includes the Wall of Heroes on which you will see the names of every recipient for the medal of honor.
