Fact of the Day: Lincoln Memorial

While the Lincoln Memorial is one of the most popular monuments in the United States, it might have been quite different if history had taken a different turn. A shrine for Lincoln was in the talks shortly after the Civil War was over, but the idea of a Greek-like monument did feel wrong to some. Some felt that a humble man like Lincoln would have preferred something like a simple log cabin shrine. 


  1. Looks like a great place to visit.

  2. I imagine he would have liked something simpler.

  3. They were probably right, but this is what you have now.
