For those of you interested in cartography, this post is for you. On my visit to the Manila American Cemetery, I was fascinated by the mosaic maps on display there.
The mosaic maps depict the military movements during World War II. It also has details or description of USAFFE's war strategies. The maps are huge and pleasing to the eyes. It can be used by historians for their research or book publication.
Students visiting the place can also learn a lot from the maps. It will provide them a glimpse of what happened during World War II in the Philippines and in neighboring countries.
Here are the photos of the maps I have taken at the Manila American Cemetery.
The way this memorial was conceptualized is excellent. It reminds us time and again to learn the lessons of history, and never repeat the same mistakes already committed.
