Inscription
The Washington Monument is the first major public monument to George Washington. Originally, the Washington Monument was built so George Washington himself could stand on top of the column and look over one of America's great cities, and also keep an eye out for any enemies that could attack by sea. The monument is two hundred seventy feet tall so that when Washington stood atop his monument, his famously long coat tails would not touch the ground.
Unfortunately, the monument was not completed during his life and Italian sculptor Enrico Causici created a statue of Washington to adorn the monument. The Statue is Washington's actual size and weight, eighteen feet tall and it weighs seven tons. His coat tails were shortened due to safety concerns. 410 462 3832
