We study them in school and visit them by the millions. They are world-renowned symbols of our nation. But they are also shrouded in misinformation, mystery and mythology. How much do we really know about America's Greatest Monuments?
Appreciate our capitol's greatest shrines on a whole new level - from the war memorials to the monuments honoring America's founding fathers to Arlington's eternal flame - in Smithsonian Networks' original program America's Greatest Monuments: Washington, D.C. These soaring tributes in stone, steel, soil and sky have amazing stories to tell. They are a permanent record of our nation's history and evolution into the world's greatest democracy, a country of the people.
