We enjoyed this walking path with an engraved timeline of important military, political and historic events that impacted the United States. This park is best for when you have the time to read the timeline.

This memorial would be of interest to anyone who is interested in the history of the United States. It provides a time line along with information about the wars. There is a lot of reading, so take your time and enjoy the walk.
