It honors him for specific reasons, including his role in promoting peace and reunion after the Civil War.

In a larger sense it exists as a place of study and contemplation of the meaning of some of the most difficult aspects of American History: military service; sacrifice; citizenship; duty; loyalty; slavery and freedom.
