Abraham Lincoln: The Man


The Standing Lincoln Statue in Chicago created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens is considered to be one of the most famous portrayals of the President. It depicts Lincoln standing before a chair in a reflective but also decisive mode. There are several replicas of the sculpture in London, Mexico City, New York, Boston and on the farm near Hodgenville, Kentucky where Lincoln was born.
