World War II Memorial

The World War II Memorial commemorates the sacrifice and celebrates the victory of "the greatest generation." Friedrich St.Florian's winning design balances classical and modernist styles of architecture, harmonizes with its natural and cultural surroundings, and connects the legacy of the American Revolution and the American Civil War with a great crusade to rid the world of fascism.
