Description

Jeanne Fogle Lyons-a historian, professor, and certified tour guide in Washington-and Elan Penn, the gifted photographer who created the superb From Sea to Shining Sea, combine their talents to create a breathtaking and fascinating homage to America's capital city. Lavish images of fabled monuments, world-famous museums, distinguished universities, and lush parks-all accompanied by fascinating background information-pay tribute to the beauty and history of Washington, D.C. From government buildings such as the Capitol, White House, and Supreme Court to outdoor statues of Ulysses S. Grant, Mary Leo Bethune, and Mahatma Gandhi, this unique visual tour captures the city's riches as never before. Visit Mount Vernon, George Washington's splendid home and plantation; the awe-inspiring Lincoln Memorial; the Arlington National Cemetery, where the eternal flame burns over John F. Kennedy's grave; and the Smithsonian, which protects the glories of our past. Watch government at work at the Federal Triangle Department Buildings, see the lovely sculpture garden at the National Gallery, and feel the magnificence of sacred structures such as St. John's of Lafayette Square. Every photo, from Ford's Theatre, where Lincoln lost his life, to Maya Lin's heartbreaking Vietnam Memorial, is inspirational.
