The two curved walls at the east entrance open a concave space in the gateway which is dramatically set apart from the ceremonial amphitheater of Patriot Plaza. Both walls present a nest motif.

The nest on the left wall is not occupied. The branches are interlaced with Abraham Lincoln’s call to action at the end of his second inaugural address:

"…let us strive…to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan…”
