Ugh, what happened? I just deleted the comments and post by mistake. Anyway, to give credit where credit is due: Emily Bremer, identified the right answer: it's the fountain in Du Pont Circle in DC. There were two other comments, but I forget who made them. Please feel free to repost those comments.

I just don't have much occasion to have those from north of the Mason-Dixon Line, though I have posted some from trips to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and Boston:

And I like to post photos from readers, including for instance Bill Turnier's photos of Maine monuments to the War:
