Monuments and Memorials Authorized and Completed Under the Commemorative Works Act in the District of Columbia [October 9, 2014]   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Since the enactment of the Commemorative Works Act (CWA) in 1986, Congress has authorized 31 commemorative works to be placed in the District of Columbia or its environs. Seventeen of these works have been completed and dedicated. This report contains a catalog of the 18 authorized works that have been completed and dedicated since 1986. For each memorial, the report provides a rationale for each authorized work, as expressed by a Member of Congress, as well as the statutory authority for its creation; and identifies the group or groups which sponsored the commemoration, the memorial's location, and the dedication date. A picture of each work is also included. The Appendix includes a map showing each completed memorial's location. For more information on the Commemorative Works Act, see CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report R41658, 'Commemorative Works in the District of Columbia: Background and Practice', by Jacob R. Straus; CRS Report R43241, 'Monuments and Memorials in the District of Columbia: Analysis and Options for Proposed Exemptions to the Commemorative Works Act', by Jacob R. Straus; and CRS Report R43744, 'Monuments and Memorials Authorized Under the Commemorative Works Act in the District of Columbia: Current Development of In-Progress and Lapsed Works', by Jacob R.
