For 'Ike,' A Monument Unlike Any Other: Eisenhower Memorial Is Dedicated In D.C.

The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial in Washington, D.C., will be dedicated on Sept. 17. A stainless steel, woven "tapestry" made by artist Tomas Osinski stands behind the statues, and depicts the cliffs at Normandy.

A new memorial to President Dwight D. Eisenhower will be dedicated just off the National Mall on Sept. 17. It was designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, but faced an uphill battle for approval.
