Statues of Washington, DC

I have been in DC for a week and have became very intrigued with the statues that are all over the city.  I have been in every gift shop and searched online for books on the statues and can't find anything.  If anyone knows of a book please let me know?

 

 

Thanks

Here is a website that lists some statues and memorials on the streets in DC.  It is broken down by quadrant.

Here is one book that has pictures of statues in DC.

 

If you want to add some detail to your knowledge on the nation's capital, or even to enjoy the artistic merit and history of some of its often overlooked--and some NEVER overlooked artworks, this is the book for you!

 

A splendid book for any resident or frequent visitor to Washington, D.C. Those interested in urban planning and outdoor sculpture, no matter what their ties to the capital, also will find it a good addition to their libraries.
