        The Lincoln Memorial | The National Mall - America's Front Yard

        The Lincoln Memorial, designed by architect Henry Bacon, sits at one end of the National Mall. Watch this video to learn more about the memorial, its design, and internal features. The memorial was created so that visitors climb steps that are “intentionally long and high, both to lift the memorial high in the air so that it can be seen from a distance, and also so that the climb itself is somewhat arduous.” Enter the memorial to find a giant statue of Lincoln, sitting on a chair, then wander through the chambers to read his addresses.
