Each year, 25 million people – Americans and visitors from all over the world – walk the National Mall, pause to reflect on its profound symbols, and ultimately come to appreciate our nation’s rich history. There is no other place in the United States that celebrates democracy, freedom of speech, leadership and heroism like the National Mall. Its expansive lawns and poignant memorials have become our nation’s greatest civic stage, giving voice to protesters and presidents alike. The National Mall is our country’s truest reflection of what America is, what America has been, and what America can be.
