Abraham Lincoln Statue B&W - Hodgenville, KY

One of the more famous Lincoln statues around, this was sculpted by Adolph Alexander Weinman and placed in the Hodgenville, KY town square center in 1909. Lincoln was born just down the road in 1809, and the statue was unveiled for the 100th anniversary of his birth, with his son, Robert Todd Lincoln, in attendance. The 6 foot tall bronze statue depicts Lincoln sitting in an Empire-style chair. Today, the statue is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
