The Washington Monument is a monolith on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., worked to recognize George Washington, once president of the Continental Army and the main President of the United States. It is the tallest momentous segment on the planet if all are estimated over their walker entrances. It was the tallest structure on the planet from 1884 to 1889.
Development of the landmark started in 1848 and was stopped from 1854 to 1877 because of an absence of assets, a battle for control over the Washington National Monument Society, and the intercession of the American Civil War. In spite of the fact that the stone structure was finished in 1884, inward ironwork, the glade, and other completing touches were not finished until 1888.
