    This is the Memorial Hall of Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    It is "a symbol of Boston's commitment to the Unionist cause and the abolitionist movement in America." (Wikipedia)

    It was built to honor the sacrifices made by Harvard men during the American Civil War.

    Thats correct.

    The hall does not commemorate the 3 Harvard students who had died fighting for the Confederates. It only commemorates the Harvardians who had died fighting for the Slaves.

    Challenge passes to you.

    This is the Monument to the Great Fire of London, in the city of London, near the North End of the London Bridge.

    I found the view amazing. :D

    If this is correct, please open the next challenge to everyone because I will not have time to monitor a challenge.

    This community in the northern hemisphere, is the start and finish location of an athletic event that is deemed the world's "toughest _____________."
    This is the most northern location that an event of this particular kind is held.

    Need the name of the community, the landmass it's located on and the name of the athletic event including a few talking points about the event.

    Good luck!
