" The Statue of Abraham Lincoln" Lincoln Memorial Tip by gosiaPL

Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C.: 149 reviews and 301 photos

  The imposing statue of Lincoln
by gosiaPL

You haven't seen the Lincoln Memorial if you didn't climb those stairs to see Abraham's statue inside... This 19-feet-high monumental figure of Lincoln in his armchair, overlooking the Washington Monument and the Capitol in the distance, makes you think of America's past and present... makes you wonder what Old Ab would possibly think today...

The inscription behind the statue reads:

In this temple
as in the hearts of the people
for whom he saved the Union
the memory of Abraham Lincoln
is enshrined forever

Take some time there and, if you're interested in America's history and Lincoln's message, read his Second Inaugural Address and the Gettysburg Address which are inscribed on the walls inside.

Address: 23rd Street, NW
Directions: Located at the western end of the National Mall, facing the Reflecting Pool, the Washington Monument, and Capitol Hill.
