Madam Tussads
I chose John F. Kennedy as my president. He was president from January 20, 1961 till November 22, 1963. He was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. John F. Kennedy was significant because he led the coutnry through conflict with Cuba and invoked strong national pride with his famous question
"Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

Mount Vernon
Mount Vernon is located in Virginia. George Washington lived there from 1761-1799 because the White House had not been built. Marquis de Lafayette was a french aristocrat and military officer who fought for the US in the Revolutionary War. He gave Washington a key as a sign of Liberty. George named the house for an admiral in the British army. The house and land itself is not symmetrical as Washington wanted it to be. Mount Vernon has a full basement but no secret pathways.

Here is a picture of the mural on the ceiling of the dome and the statue of Abe Lincoln. The mural is significant because it says "E Plurisbus Unum" meaning out of many, one. In the dome room the rose in the center signifies the center of D.C.

Abraham Lincoln was considered a wise man who wanted what was best for his country and the people. He wanted freedom and peace and believed everyone was created equally.

Jefferson Memorial
Thomas Jefferson was the 3rd president of the United States. In his hand he is holding the Declaration of Independence. He is the only President that looks at the White House everyday.
