A brief history of the presidential memorial to go alongside my Stock Photography

 

 

  • It was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who came up with the idea of a memorial to honour the third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson.

 

  • He believed that Jefferson was equally as important as George Washington & Abraham Lincoln.

 

  • The memorial was designed in a classical style with circular colonnade by John Russell Pope in recognition of Jefferson bringing the style to the country, the memorial was dedicated in 1943.

 

  • The memorial structure houses the bronze statue of Thomas Jefferson sculpted by Rudulph Evans which was originally a plaster version, until it was recast in bronze after Wolrd War II.

 

  • The statue shows Jefferson looking straight towards the White House.

 

  • Etched on the inner walls of the memorial are Jefferson's words from the Declaration of Independence & other writings.

 

  • This gallery showcases the domed & colonnaded Thomas Jefferson Memorial styled on the "Pantheon" in Rome.

 

  • The presidential memorial is dedicated to one of the most important of the American "Founding Fathers" and the author of the Declaration of Independence.
