D.C. National Guard members blocked access to the Lincoln Memorial on June 2 while protesters gathered around the reflecting pool where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "I Have a Dream" speech in 1963. The National Park Service told New York Times reporter Katie Rogers that the memorial was blocked on the orders of U.S. Attorney General William Barr.
