An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue

Pennsylvania Avenue Grand Army of the Republic

You stop at a street vendor to get a hot dog and soda. You will see vendors all along Pennsylvania Avenue, selling everything from ice cream to souvenirs of Washington.

Crossing Pennsylvania Avenue again, you walk back to 7th Street to see two more Civil War statues. One honors the Grand Army of the Republic. That was a name for the Union army that fought to keep the country together.

This statue at Pennsylvania Avenue and 7th Street honors the Grand Army of the Republic.  The name refers to the Union Army during the Civil War.
