Bas Reliefs

Franklin Roosevelt, like three other presidents whose memorials grace the National Mall, commanded attention because of his stature. Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt all stood over six feet tall. Before he was confined to a wheelchair, FDR stood out in a crowd at 6’2” tall.
