Synopsis by Nathan Southern

This program represents one episode in a documentary series commissioned and produced for The Smithsonian Network, exploring the various national monuments in the United States. The series in question deliberately attempts to strip away the myths and legends surrounding these buildings, statues and memorials to reveal the historical legacies that belie them. This particular episode travels to the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., for an in-depth look at such creations as the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial.
