The Jefferson Memorial is a national monument honoring Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, who was not only an American Founding Father, but also an author and signor of the Declaration of Independence. The initial idea for erecting the Jefferson Memorial was first introduced in 1934, by then President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was a great admirer of Jefferson. At the time there was a Federal Triangle project under construction and Roosevelt asked the Commission of Fine Arts to include it in its plans. During that same year, Congressman John J Boylan was appointed the Commission's chairman, and worked to appropriate $3 million for the memorial
Incredibly detailed, fun to assemble and beautiful to display.
