This program follows the process of conceiving and creating the new national World War II Memorial -- from the sculptor's studios to the stone quarries to the construction site itself. It features interviews with key artists and craftsman, plus political figures and art consultants involved in the decisions and controversies. Woven into the story of constructing the memorial are interviews with WWII veterans and those on the home front.
