Designed by architect Henry Bacon, this beautiful Greek-style monument was built to honor Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president (1861-65) of the United States. The structure was completed in 1922 and dedicated on Memorial Day of that year.

Thirty-six Ionic columns, each standing forty-four feet tall, represent the thirty-six states of the Union at the time of Abraham Lincoln's death in 1865. Engraved on the inside right wall is Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address, which he delivered just forty-one days before his death. His eloquent Gettysburg Address is engraved on the inside left wall. The beautiful mural of the Angel of Truth was painted by Jules Guerin. The names of all forty-eight states existing in 1922 are shown in festoons on the outside parapet of the monument. Leading from the sidewalk up to the statue are fifty-six steps, each one representing a year of Lincoln's life.

The 19-foot high statue of the seated Abraham Lincoln was designed by Daniel Chester French, America's most recognized sculptor of public monuments. French used twenty-eight blocks of white marble during the four years it took to carve the statue.
