Lincon Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial stands as a stately monument in Washington, D.C. in honor of President Abraham Lincoln. The monument houses a colossal image of a seated Lincoln, looking eastward across a reflecting pool at the Washington Monument and Capitol. It is designed on a plan similar to the Parthenon in Athens by Henry Bacon. There are thirty-six columns (13.4 meters [44 feet] high) of Colorado marble surrounding the structure. They represent the thirty-six states that comprised the Union in Lincoln s time. The gigantic likeness of a seated Lincoln (19 feet high) is sculpted from Georgia white marble, while the base is composed of marble from Tennessee. Daniel Chester French designed the statue and the Piccirilli brothers of New York executed the sculpture.
Lincoln s Gettysburg Address is inscribed on the south wall and his Second Inaugural Address on the North. Patriotic paintings by Jules Guerin adorn the monument. The memorial was dedicated on Memorial Day, May 30, 1922.
