Virginia War Memorial

Walk inside the Virginia War Memorial and you enter hallowed ground. Here, on its soaring glass and marble walls, are the names of more than 11,600 Virginia heroes who gave their lives to keep our country free. Overlooking the historic Richmond business district and the James River, the memorial was created by the Virginia General Assembly to honor Virginia’s war dead.

Many herald the Virginia War Memorial as the nation’s premier state memorial honoring veterans. The memorial honors our fallen heroes by passing their stories of sacrifice forward to future generations.
