DC's Overlooked Memorials

Sure, they’re a traffic nuisance. But the circles that cut through DC’s avenues are also loaded with history. Many of the circles (34, in all) are named after American Civil War generals, like Thomas Circle. Here, a statue honors General George Henry Thomas, a Southerner who stayed loyal to the Union at great personal cost.
