    My now deceased husband was a USMC officer in the early 1970s. He had the honor of leading the sunset parades at Ft. McHenry during the summer months. Picture brought back fond memories of those nights! Thank you~

  2. Thank you for this most memorable tour. As I was going through the monuments, it dawned on me that my Dad planned many of our family vacations at the beautiful, historic sites, (Statue of Liberty, Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, The Liberty Bell, and Colonial Williamsburg. I appreciate my Father’s excellent choices for some of our vacations.
    This year I hopefully will visit Mt. Rushmore, SD.

  3. Why don’t they ever include the third tallest memorial in the National Park Service? Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial is taller than the Statue of Liberty. Only monument dedicated to international peace.
