DC WWI Memorial rededicated

The District of Columbia WWI Memorial is rededicated on the National Mall as District leaders spoke out to keep it from being nationalized.

A bronze plaque was specially recreated to replace a missing plaque at the center of the District of Columbia WWI Memorial as part of the memorial's renovation, seen during a rededication ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 10, 2011. The National Park Service did not have records of the exact design on the original plaque, with the exception of the design including an image of an eagle, but made the replacement to mesh with the marble patterns on the floor.
