6: Pausing at the Lincoln Memorial

Twelve trolley stops later, right after Arlington Cemetery, we just had to get one last moment with the spirit of Abraham Lincoln, so we hopped off at the Memorial. We hadn't been here since we were kids, but the power of the architecture still works.

In fact, the whole design of Washington DC still works. There are so many places where a person can stand alone, no matter how large the crowds, and take the measure of himself, our legendary founders and the whole darn USA.

After Ford's Theater, where Lincoln was brought so low, this monument can't help but pump the myth back to its full height. But the more we read about Lincoln and by Lincoln, the more fascinating the man becomes.

Here underneath the Lincoln Memorial, at yet another museum, Lincoln's writings loom as large as he. That's why you'll find the Internet burgeoning with information about Lincoln's life, his presidency and his death.
