1 Washington D.C. Map and Walking Tour ~Map Creation and Brochure~ Introduction: Congratulations! You have been selected to participate in this exciting project. Your job is to create a brochure and map of Washington DC for people to use as a guide through the wonderful city of Washington DC. Walking Tour Samples: The National Mall stands at the heart of monumental Washington, embodying the ideals of democracy in its gleaming white marble structures, pools, fountains, and perfect greensward. The Mall honors this country's most hallowed heroes in memorials and monuments, and its many museums celebrate the arts, histories, and cultures of the world. The Smithsonian Institution exerts the most powerful influence here, with nine different buildings, but other stellar institutions such as the National Gallery of Art, the National Archives, and the United States Holocaust Memorial make up the essence of Washington DC. Source: The National Mall Tour is a walking tour that dives deep into the history of the Washington Monument, WWII Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial and so much more. Stand in awe before the world's tallest manmade stone structure as we reveal the story of our first President and the monumental obstacles he overcame. Ponder the incredible historical significance of the WWII Memorial. Understand the great sacrifice of the names on the Vietnam Wall as you look at your own reflection. Stand in the exact spot where MLK delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech. Learn about the President who guided the nation through the Civil War and ended slavery. Hear Dwight Eisenhower speak on the meaning of the Korean War, and gain the knowledge of how the "Forgotten War" was in fact the beginning of one of the longest. The National Mall is the single greatest attraction in Washington DC, don't miss out on any of these icons of American democracy. Source: Mall- Walking- Tour- Map.jpg This is a great way to see all of the Monuments and Memorials of Washington DC, each unique and important in its own way. The walk starts at the White House and continues through the National Mall, along the Reflecting Pool, around the Tidal Basin, and eventually ends at the US Capitol Building and Supreme Court. This tour will take you through many significant eras in the history of the United States, including the Revolutionary War, Vietnam War, Korean War, World War II, past several memories to inspiring presidents such as Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Jefferson, and past all three branches of government.
