Lincoln Memorial

The National Mall
555 Feet and 51/8inches tall it is the largest free standing stone structure
in the world. Dedicated on Feb 21, 1885 this monument stands in
tribute to the nation's first president and "The father of the USA"

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