Rolling Thunder Rally, Memorial Day, Memorial Bridge

We took these photos during the Memorial Day Rolling Thunder Rally, in Washington DC. The statue of bronze is located just behind the Lincoln Memorial just after you cross the Memorial  Bridge and  Potomac river. 

The statues, approximately 17 feet tall are of gilded bronze. They were commissioned in 1925, but were not erected until 1951.Memorial Bridge runs across the Potomac River from the Lincoln Memorial to Arlington House in Virginia.
