Latest D.C. Memorial Items
A federal law that essentially bans any more construction on the National Mall might prevent an attempt to "nationalize" the District of Columbia World War I Memorial, a National Park Service official said Tuesday.
Officials in the District are accustomed to asking Congress for full voting rights on behalf of the city's 600,000 residents or for greater control of city finances — and getting no satisfaction.
Edwin L. Fountain says a teenager who walks around the Mall and takes in the ornate, circular memorial to World War II just might wonder whatever happened to World War I.
