U.S. Park Police officers stop “zombies” from crossing the street to the Lincoln Memorial at dawn Monday. They were to swarm the monument as part of a publicity campaign staged in major cities around the world for AMC’s “The Walking Dead” TV series. The zombies were turned away from the Great Emancipator’s memorial because they failed to secure a permit.
Visitors get their first look at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, which opened to the public on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014. The new memorial is located off Independence Ave. SW between the Rayburn House Office Building and HHS. Buy photo here.
