Second Division Memorial
The Second Division Memorial is located in President’s Park, between 17th Street Northwest and Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC. It commemorates those who died, while serving in the 2nd Infantry Division of the U. S. Army during World War I. The artist was James Earl Fraser.
While the sculpture itself does not appear to have been a New Deal project, it was erected with New Deal (most likely WPA) labor and/or funds. It was dedicated on July 18, 1936, by president Franklin D. Roosevelt.
