An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue

Pennsylvania Avenue Traffic Circle

You start at a small traffic circle at First Street. In the center of the circle is a statue honoring the officers, seamen, and marines of the U.S. Navy who served during the American Civil War (1861-1865). You will see several more statues honoring heroes of our Civil War and our other wars as you walk along Pennsylvania Avenue. As you look ahead, you can see the Washington Monument just off to the left. In the center of a small traffic circle is a statue honoring the U.S. Navy for its role in the American Civil War.
