Lincoln Statues & Monuments
I believe there are hundreds of statues commemorating President Lincoln around the United States, but how many different souvenirs have been made of those statues? Statue replica seems to represent Abe from a boy through adulthood and from Illinois to Gettysburg. A while back, I wrote also about a mystery Lincoln monument which is either lost or destroyed. Let’s not forget about Mt. Rushmore souvenirs which have been made in almost every size and material. I found this web site which has links and photos of Lincoln statues in almost every state in the country. In the next Lincoln post, I’ll explore other buildings and souvenirs commemorating Lincoln.
