Always nice to see such an statue and architectual site. The text on the walls are interesting. You can walk around and don't have to spend a lot of time

One of the great sights to see in this city. The Lincoln Memorial is truly awe-inspiring. On either side of the massive statue, carved on the walls, is the Gettysburg Address and Lincoln's second inaugural address. There's also a tiny gift shop if, like me,...More
