著名景区英文介绍:林肯纪念堂

林肯纪念堂被视为美国永恒的塑像及华盛顿市标志,为纪念美国第十六届总统亚伯拉罕·林肯而建。纪念堂位于华盛顿的国家大草坪西端,碧波如染的波托马克河东岸上,与东端的国会大厦遥遥相望,是一座用通体洁白的花岗岩和大理石建造的古希腊神殿式纪念堂。

纪念堂于1914年破土动工,完成于1922年。纪念堂气氛庄严,每天更有不少游客和学生乘车来此参观。已故总统林肯是最受尊敬的美国总统之一,人民不会忘记他对美国作出的贡献──解放奴隶和维护美国统一。 也正是他从社会最低层看出奴隶制的丑恶,揭穿"人人生来平等"的虚伪面纱。 虽然他被残酷暗杀,但他的精神将永存林肯纪念堂中。

West Potomac Park, at 23rd Street between Constitution and Independence avenues; closest Metro Foggy Bottom-GWU. Daily 24hr, staffed 8ammidnight. Admission free.

At the far west end of the Mall, the Lincoln Memorial is modelled upon a Doric temple, enclosed by a colonnade and fronted by a long reflecting pool. During the Civil Rights march on Washington in 1963, Dr Martin Luther King Jr delivered his epic "I Have a Dream" speech, not from the steps of the White House or the US Capitol, but here. Ironically, when this monument to the Great Emancipator was dedicated in 1922, the crowds were segregated by color even black leader Dr Robert Moton, who gave an address, was forced to watch from a roped-off area to the side.

The Lincoln Memorial is a fitting tribute to the man who held the country together during the Civil War and thereby put an end to slavery in the US. A craggy likeness of Abraham Lincoln sits firmly grasping the arms of his throne-like chair, apparently deep in thought, while inscriptions of Lincoln's two most celebrated speeches the Gettysburg Address and the Second Inaugural Address are carved on north and south walls.
