Artist's Description

Yes, this beautiful set of statues is on the red brick sidewalk in the town square in Gettysburg PA. The representation of Abe Lincoln encountering a modern day man is fantastic for a town that is so alive with history.

Dedicated to and in honor of our amazing president Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crisis—the American Civil War—preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government and modernizing the economy. Reared in a poor family on the western frontier, Lincoln was self-educated, and became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, Illinois state legislator during the 1830s, and a one-term member of the United States House of Representatives during the 1840s.

With the great Union victory at the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863, and the defeat of the Copperheads in the Ohio election in the fall, Lincoln maintained a strong base of party support and was in a strong position to redefine the war effort, despite the New York City draft riots. The stage was set for his address at the Gettysburg battlefield cemetery on November 19, 1863. Defying Lincoln’s prediction that “the world will little note, nor long remember what we say here,” the Address has become the most quoted speech in American history.
