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

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.

    Cool! I don’t believe I’ve seen this one before. I can’t believe how many monuments and memorials there are to see in DC. Glad you’re getting to explore the area more!
