To serve as a symbol of unity, strength and wisdom, the 16th President Abraham Lincoln is honored with this memorial featuring a statue seated below the inscription, "In this temple, as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever." Completed 57 years after his assassination, the Greek Doric temple was also the site for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic 'I Have A Dream" speech delivered during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom rally in 1963. While the site is impressive during the day, the view will take your breathe away at night. METRO: Smithsonian
