American Merchant Mariners' Memorial, Battery Park, New York

The memorial to American Merchant Marines during World War Two. The number of casualties endured by Merchant Mariners during World War Two is horrific, and at least for part of the war it was the single most dangerous service to be in.  This stark memorial commemorates their service with a memorial that frankly contemplates the death of all three merchant seamen depicted in the memorial.
