A large protest erupted over construction of the Jefferson Memorial because:
a) It closed the public beach forever.
b) Jefferson was the third president, what about Adams, the second?
c) It required cutting down old elm and cherry trees on the site.
d) It was not part of Pierre L'Enfant's 1791 plan for the city.
e) A Roman, pantheon-style structure on the National Mall would diminish the simple obelisk monument dedicated to Washington the "Father" of the country.
