Weekly Photo Mojo: Grand Army of the Republic Memorial – D.C.

In All Topics, Travel Photography, United States by Ryan2 Comments

Recently on a cold January day in Washington D.C. I came across this memorial while wandering the city with my good friend. We had been discussing our upcoming trip to Haiti (more on that to come) when the aged bronze and the stone obelisk caught my eye.

A Civil War memorial for the Grand Army of the Republic, a group founded by Dr. Benjamin F. Stephenson in 1866 for veteran Union soldiers after the American civil war ended.

The GAR became an advocacy voice for black American’s voting rights and other causes after the American civil war.
