Summary
"Though Abraham Lincoln remains one of the most beloved figures in American history and millions of people visit the Lincoln Memorial each year, few are familiar with the intriguing stories behind this national monument. In authoritative yet friendly text and handsome watercolor illustrations, this volume reveals fascinating facts about the monument's design and construction, historic events that took place there, and insights into the role this elegant edifice has played in the creation of a national identity. From 19th-century political infighting to Martin Luther King Jr. and beyond, this is a celebration of an iconic American and a famous memorial-- and the ideal gift for architecture lovers and history buffs"--
