Memorial Day 2020

File:Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier-27527.jpg

This memorial, to honor an unknown Revolutionary War soldier (who may or may not have been fighting for the new United States), is located in Washington Square in Philadelphia. It was completed in 1957. Jail prisoners were buried in the cemetery that had been on the grounds, and this was also the site of a mass graveyard for victims of the yellow fever epidemic. I think it is a particularly apt image for this Memorial Day.
