Winston Churchill Memorial

No - this is not in the UK. It is in little Fulton, Missouri, on the campus of Westminster College. It was here that Sir Winston gave his historic speech in which he coined the phrase "Iron Curtain." His statue stands in front of a Sir Christopher Wren church (Saint Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury) which once stood in London. In the basement of the church are a Churchill Museum, library, and gift shop. Other notabales who have spoken here: Mikhail Gorbachev, Harry S. Truman, Gerald R. Ford, Ronald W. Reagan, George H. Bush, and Margaret Thatcher. Amazing for such a small college in a small town in mid-Missouri.
