Why are some National Memorials not listed?[edit]

The National AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco is not listed among the national memorials - and I suspect there are several other national memorials this article does not include.

The memorial was named a national memorial by the US Congress in 1994 or thereabouts.

Non-NPS Nat'l Memorials?[edit]

I removed two items which were not federally designated protected areas. Anyone can call themselves a "national memorial" -it is not the same thing at all. Are there, in fact, any federally designated "National Memorials" not run be the NPS? Rmhermen 19:51, May 13, 2004 (UTC)

Benjamin Franklin National Memorial is Congressionally authorized, but administerd by the Franklin Institute. However, it is an "affiliated area" of the NPS, meaning that the Institute can request certain assistance from that agency. — Eoghanacht talk 14:56, 19 September 2005 (UTC)

George Mason Memorial?[edit]

Should the George Mason Memorial be included in this list? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sedna1000 (talkcontribs) 10:24, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Added. Although the NPS has a webpage for this site, they do not include it in their list of areas while other memorials in the Mall are listed. Rmhermen (talk) 02:26, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Update Manhattan?[edit]

How about the National September 11 Memorial & Museum? SergeWoodzing (talk) 23:55, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

That is a private foundation, not a public park. Rmhermen (talk) 00:10, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. How would one know that, from the name? SergeWoodzing (talk) 01:15, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
You wouldn't, and this is true of many memorials in the U.S. Rmhermen (talk) 02:48, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
