In Washington, D.C., a “Hellenic Doric-style” temple (the Lincoln Memorial) sits at one end of the city’s central “forum” (The Mall), housing a colossal cult statue (Abraham Lincoln). A Roman “triumphal arch” monumentalizes the front of the main train depot (Union Station). Roman equestrian statues make assertions amidst circular plazas. This talk explores these juxtapositions in America’s capital city.
