LIFE Presents: Monuments That Redefine America
Great monuments are places where our culture’s values are enshrined; they speak of the character of our nation and attempt to make immutable statements about what we believe. We are a dynamic country whose proliferating monuments reflect an evolving identity. Nowhere is this more evident than in the west, where the national narrative and frontier meet. Beginning with Los Angeles’ scuttled alternative to the Statue of Liberty, presenter John Kirwin, Instructor of English at MiraCosta College, will take you in search of those gateways to the West that essentially redefines America.
