Cornerstones of Freedom: The Story of The Vietnam Veterans Memorial (Hardback)

"There are hundreds of memorials in the city of Washington. They show presidents or heroic soldiers or famous patriots. Some, such as the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, tower impressively above the national's capital. But the memorial that attracts the most visitors is like no other statue or monument. It is a low, shiny, black wall covered with names. This is the story of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and how it was created." — David K. Wright, Author
