Synopsis by Laura Mahnken
There are few cities in the U.S. as rich in political history and intrigue as Washington D.C. This Video Visits title stops at the Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson Memorials for quiet reflection before heading on to the bustling Capitol and the White House. Get a real flavor for the youth and stateliness of Georgetown. The Vietnam Memorial will touch your heart, not only because of the thousands of names of the people who lost their lives serving their country etched into its stone but also because of the sight of the mementos left by loved ones to honor their dead. No visit is complete without a journey across the Potomac to the Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which concludes this video visit.
