True History from Victory Heights
Victory Square: Chapter 1 of Victory Heights opens with Rosalie racing through Victory Square in downtown Seattle.
With one end modeled after the Washington monument and the other after Thomas Jefferson's house, Montecello, Victory Square was a focal point for Seattle’s World War II homefront. They'd have rallies, bond drives, and live entertainment. It was located on University Street, between 4th and 5th avenues in front of the Olympic Hotel, the monument also listed the names of Washington state citizens who lost their lives during the war.
