An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue

Pennsylvania Avenue General George Meade

You cross Pennsylvania Avenue, passing a small, wild garden, to look at the statue of Civil War General George Meade in front of the United States Court House. Next to the courthouse is a quiet little park, rising by steps up a hill. The park is named after John Marshall, an early Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. You find a statue of him way in the back, but it doesn't interest you too much because you never heard of Justice Marshall.

This statue of General George Meade, who commanded the Union Army at the Battle of Gettysburg, is located in front of the U.S. Court House.
