  THE HEMICYCLE OF THE ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY
by matcrazy1
 
 

The impressive, monumental semicircular retaining wall is put at the end of Memorial Drive, the boulevard which starts at the Memorial Bridge over the Potomac River.

The Classical Revival style structure called the Hemicycle is a must for the two reasons:
1. its architecture;
2. The Women's Memorial or to be more exact the Women in Military Service for America Memorial.
