Vietnam Veterns Memorial Capitol Building The White House The Capitol Building was rebuilt because it
was burned down. The Senate and the House
of Representatives meet there. There is also the echo chamber where you can whisper and hear it every where. In 1793 the Capitol was built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored. The Capitol also houses an important collection of American art, and architectural achievement.
I think that the Abraham Lincoln Memorial
was very interesting. The Lincoln Memorial stands at the west end of the National Mall, it is surrounded by a peristyle of 38 fluted Doric columns, one for each of the thirty-six states in the Union at the time of his death. Lincoln was a great man who fought for slavery to be abolished. There was also a mistake in the Second Inaugural Address and Gettysburg Address. He is also our 16th President of the United States,
I thought the Newseum was cool because they had information about the Internet, TV, Radio Gallery and also plenty of newspapers. It was very interesting to see the transition of radio to TV to Internet. There were newspapers there from all over the country. They have so many galleries and Exhibits like News History, First Amendment Gallery, World News, Today’s Front Pages, Pulitzer Prize Photographs and 9/11 Gallery. At the Cemetery there were so many people who died in the wars. There were also soldiers that were doing something called the “Changing of The Guards”. It is 612 acres of sacred ground and represents the hollowed resting place of military through the American History. This was one of the best museums that we went to.
I love the different animals that I saw like the Giant
Clam, Semipalmated Sandpiper or the Christmas
Tree Worm. They were all cool to see. Also the Jewelry
section that we saw was interesting to see and looked
very expensive. Pamplin Park was a great experience. They
showed us how to shoot a gun, also how soldiers
had to obey the Master. I couldn't be a soldier
and live like that, with all the discipline and labor
you have to go through. Also, there was a war on the land that they built the park on.

In this Museum there are some interesting things about the presidents that you may or may not know. Like George Washington, James Monroe, William H. Taft and Obama our president today. You can also learn some things about the wars like the Philadelphia and the American War of Independence. The Archives Center features items from the museum’s archive collection that document America’s history and its diverse cultures, ranging from correspondences, diaries, and financial.
This was another sad memorial to go to especially if one of your siblings died during that time. There were so many names on the black wall. The diamond represented the dead and the cross represented MIA. They called it the "Healing Stone" because so many people died, so people go to meditate and refresh their soul. In the White House we have Barak Obama who lives
there. They have parties and balls there also.
The Oval Office is were Obama makes his important
decisions. Also, they have many meetings there.
This museum was an emotional one. This museum is a memorial to the millions who died during the Nazi regime in Germany during World War II. The Holocaust Museum has more then 900 artifacts, 70 video monitors, and 4 theaters showing film footage and eyewitness testimonies of camp survivors. There were so many things that happened during that period of time like the Nazis "Euthanasia" and The Search for Refuge. One of the events made me sad which was when the people were giving testimonies and one man said they hung people on Hanukkah and Christmas. For me, that is a time to worship God or whatever you believe in. There were also many people who died from starvation. Wax Museum This Museum brings historical figures and events to life through wax figures. You can also touch your president or an important person in your life. Also, you can take a picture with them. You can learn the secrets used in creating the wax figures through
your hands on process in the museum.
