Washington DC: Jefferson Memorial — 2 Comments

  1. Hello,
    I liked your article about the Jefferson Memorial. I was really interested in the tour guide’s answer why the Jefferson statue faces toward the White House. The real reason is FDR was very responsible for having the memorial built. FDR had the trees cut down on the south front of the White House lawn cut so he could look at the Jefferson Memorial.Also most statues face toward the White House

    • Thank you for the comment. So what other statues face the White House? My personal observation is that most faced the Capitol.
