Standing at the center of a granite plaza, this bronze memorial depicting rifle-bearing troops is DC’s first major art piece by black sculptor Ed Hamilton. The statue is surrounded on three sides by the Wall of Honor, listing the names of 209,145 black troops who fought in the Union Army, as well as the 7000 white soldiers who served alongside them. You can use the directory to locate individual names within each of the regiments.

To get there, depart the Metro station via the 10th St exit (follow the ‘memorial’ signs as you leave the train).
