Scenes from Kansas City: Liberty Memorial
In honor of Veteran’s Day, here are some night shots of the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City. Dedicated in 1926, the Liberty Memorial is an Egyptian Revival limestone memorial dedicated to the soldiers who perished in World War I that stands tall on a hill near Union Station and Crown Center. Since December 2006, the memorial has also housed the official National World War I Museum of the United States covering the global events that led up to the first World War through the 1918 Armistice and 1919 Paris Peace Conference.
The base of the Liberty Memorial is well known in Kansas City as the best place to see the city skyline.
