Thomas Jefferson Memorial

Washington, D.C.

When you’re one of the founding fathers of the United States, author of the Declaration of Independence, a revolutionary and the nation’s third president, then eventually a memorial is erected in your honor. Modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC, is built around a 19-foot-tall bronze statue of Jefferson. Inside are 5 quotes that illuminate the core philosophies of Jefferson’s life -- philosophies that continue to guide our nation today.
