African American Civil War Memorial

The African American Civil War Memorial honors the service of 208,943 soldiers during the Civil War, including 7,000 white officers under whom they served. The site is located at the north entrance to the U Street Metro Station and is across the street from the African American Civil War Museum. The site design has the traditional flavor of other Washington, D.C. memorials located on and around the National Mall. The memorial was designed by architect Edward Dunson, landscape architect Paul Devrouax, and sculptor Ed Hamilton.
