Berlin Wall Monument

This monument memorializes the historic barrier that separated West and East Berlin during the Cold War. AFter the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989, concrete sections were given to President Ronald Reagan by the U.S. Commander of the Berlin Brigade. Three sections were subsequently donated to Fort Leavenworth because of the worldwide influence of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.

The design of the memorial expresses three themes: a "falling position" representing the crumbling of the Wall; a horizontal position representing the Wall's destruction; and a vertical position representing that democracy stands.

Directions: North on Grant Avenue, right on Stimson Avenue, right on Bundel Road to the Grove of Regiments. This monument site is located outside and is open daily. Call 800-844-4114 for more information.
