New Zealand put on a traditional Maori Haka performance on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.

It is located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon, the sculptor of the primary statue – Abraham Lincoln, 1920 – was Daniel Chester French, and the painter of the interior murals was Jules Guerin.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president.

Approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually. In 2007, the Memorial was ranked seventh in the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. The Memorial is open to the public 24 hours a day and is free to visit.
