We visited Washington DC in July of 2006. I don't really have very many pictures from the trip (at least not compared to how many I usually take). I can only assume it's becuase I did not yet have the mega-sized memory cards that I have today. As a result, there aren't any detailed pictures, just these two general shots.
Construction began on the Lincoln Memorial in February 1914 and was completed in 1922. The structure was designed by architect Henry Bacon. The statue was designed by Daniel Chester French and carved by the Piccirilli Brothers of New York. For more information visit http://www.nps.gov/linc/index.htm.
