Visit this wonderful memorial. The displays, the authentic memorabilia, the famous (and not so famous quotes) by past military leaders is a fantastic history lesson and a way to both remember and honor our veterans. Staff was very helpful.

A war memorial for the many Virginian Souls perished during US wars. The wall of names is both breathtaking and unnerving. The friendly and attentive staff bring this memorial to life.

A monument to World War I, this memorial was built in 1932 and stands 240 ft tall. The bells still are functional. Check on line to see when they ring. It's impressive.

To me, this is a holy place. The reverence is palpable-- from the care and artistry of the design, to the placement on the banks of the James. I feel very sad when I visit, seeing all those names of Virginians who have died in...More
