John Pershing Park

John Pershing was a famous Army General.  He fought in several wars including, the Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, and World War I & II.  He also has the distinction of being one of only two men to achieve the rank of General of the Armies (with the only other person being George Washington).

In downtown Washington, D.C., on Pennsylvania Ave., there's a small park and monument to John Pershing.  I took these photos last fall.  And, yes, the water really is that green!  I'm pretty sure they put something in it to dye it.
