On This Day, In This City

"I leave you, hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all men are created free and equal." Abraham Lincoln, July 10, 1858, Chicago, Illinois.

Scultpure: The Seated Lincoln, by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Grant Park, Chicago. Other work featured on this blog by the same sculptor can be found here.


  1. I have not seen this sculpture of my cousin, President Lincoln. I like it and his squared-off shoes.
