Description

The World War II Memorial in Nashville, Tennessee’s Bicentennial Park is a stunning tribute to one of the nation’s most devastating wars, yet one of their greatest military triumphs.

The monument features towering pillars made of black granite, on which images of various battles are engraved, such as the attacks at Pearl Harbor and the Battle of the Bulge.  Captions describe each photo and its relation to the history of Tennessee.  In the center of the pillar arrangement is a remarkable 18,000 pound black granite globe that floats on a shallow bed of water. With an almost magical aura, the enormous globe is in constant motion, slowly rotating in the 1/8 inch layer of water.  Miraculously, visitors can manipulate the motion of the globe with just a touch of their hands.  There are also seven concrete benches, which represent the seven Tennessee recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor.

The glistening black of the granite creates an eerily peaceful oasis for tribute to such a paramount part of our nation’s history; it incites deep introspection that all people can relate to, not just Tennessee natives. The monument is located inside Bicentennial Mall State Park at 600 James Robertson Parkway.
