Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego?! She's probably bouncing around between the monuments and today, so are we! From the Statue of Liberty to the Lincoln Memorial, can you guess which state these monuments are located in?

If you were to take a trip around the globe, as you visit country to country, you'd probably stop at some of the most famous monuments in the world. Who could go to France without first going to the Eiffel Tower? How could you visit Rio de Janeiro without going to see Christ the Redeemer? If you're traveling to Egypt, you'd have to see the Pyramids at Giza! While these are some of the most visited monuments around the world, we can't forget about the ones in the United States!

The United States has its own long list of monuments that people travel from around the world to see. You'll find a large category of them dedicated to former presidents. A large statue of Abraham Lincoln sits inside the Lincoln Memorial, while a pointed monument stands erected for George Washington. There's also the images of Washington's, Jefferson's, Lincoln's, and Theodore Roosevelt's faces carved into rock at Mount Rushmore. While these are some of the most popular monuments, none of these top the Statue of Liberty, a gift to the US from France.

These are some of the most popular US monuments. Can you match them to their state? There are hundreds more like it around the country and we want to know if you can pair them to the right state. 

Will your score go down in history like these monuments? There's only one way to find out! Let's go!
