Major sights on this tour:
When German U-Boats started sinking American cargo ships during WWI, Uncle Sam called on one man to lead the charge for the USA: John J. Pershing. General Pershing shares the highest rank ever held in the United States Army with just one other man - George Washington.
Located in front of the architecturally distinct W and Willard hotels, the statue of the great General stands alongside a Wall of Achievement, surrounded by lush greenery and a pond. Pershing Park provides a sanctuary in the midst of an urban jungle.
