Dedication of the Jefferson Memorial
"Today in the midst of a great war for freedom, we dedicate a shrine to freedom." These words were spoken by President Franklin D. Roosevelt when he dedicated the Jefferson Memorial on the 200th anniversary of Jefferson's birth. The event was witnessed by a crowd of 5,000 and millions more by radio.
