The Robert E. Lee Memorial

The Robert E. Lee Memorial honors Lee's military and public leadership in pre- and post-Civil War America. Congress designated the memorial to recognize that "the desire and hope of Robert E. Lee for peace and unity within our Nation has come to pass." From the portico you can contemplate our nation's fate as you gaze across the river that once divided us.
