Product Description

The Washington Monument towers above the city that bears his name, serving as an inspiring reminder of George Washington's greatness. The monument, like the man, stands in no one's shadow. The Washington Monument was the tallest building in the world upon its completion in 1884 at 555 feet, 5-1/8 inches.

Washington's military and political leadership were indispensable to the founding of the United States. As commander of the Continental Army, he rallied Americans from 13 divergent states and outlasted Britain's superior military force. As the 1st president, Washington's superb leadership set the standard for each president that has succeeded him.

The Washington Monument, designed by Robert Mills and eventually completed by Thomas Casey and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, honors and memorializes George Washington at the center of the nation's capital. The structure was completed in 2 phases of, one private (1848-1854) and one public (1876-1884). Built in the shape of an Egyptian obelisk, evoking the timelessness of ancient civilizations, the Washington Monument embodies the awe, respect, and gratitude the nation felt for its most essential Founding Father.
