Lincoln Memorial in Washington

The Lincoln Memorial is admittedly one of the finest memorials of modern times in Washington on Jan. 8, 1942. The exterior of the memorial building symbolizes the Union of the States. Thirty-six columns of Indiana limestone form a colonnade representing the 36 states which existed at the time of Lincoln’s death, the frieze above it bearing the names of the 48 States of the Union as they exist. Inside is a sanctuary containing a colossal marble statue of the Emancipator. On the north wall is inscribed Lincoln’s Second Inaugural address and on the south wall, the famous Gettysburg Speech. The Memorial was designed by Henry Bacon, architect and the statue by Daniel Chester French, sculptor. The memorial was visited by 1,758,810 persons during 1941, 362,995 visiting the memorial in April, the busiest month. (AP Photo)
