Day 19: October 17, 2015--Washington, DC, to Atlanta, GA GALLERY

Read today's Post

For some reason, these weren't torn. This is what all our tickets looked like originally.

It was quite a busy day! See the story of our nearest tragedy back in today's Post.

Around the White House

There's a street in L.A. named for Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a Polish
military man who fought for the Americans in the Revolutionary War.

The United States Marine Corps War Memorial

Walking from the station to the cemetery, we saw this strange sight.

Note the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial
on the other side of the Potomac River; we're well over three miles from the Capitol.

The Washington National Cathedral

As with the "Iwo Jima Memorial" above, I will present these largely without comment.
