Soaring high above Confederation Square, the National War Memorial is a tribute to Canadian soldiers and veterans who fought and died in the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War. Designed by Vernon March, it depicts a group of soldiers struggling through a massive granite arch, which is crowned by symbols of peace and freedom holding a wreath. At the base, a granite sarcophagus marks the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Each year, on November 11, it’s the site of a national Remembrance Day ceremony. —Amy Allen
