The statue shows Lincoln as he heads to Washington to begin his presidency, though at first glance you might think he's belting out his favorite Celine Dion number,
And if you look at just his torso, you might think of him as a sort of funky 1970's type - give the man a zodiac-related medallion to wear and he'll get that night fever, he knows how to show it.

It's the only statue depicting the Great Emancipator as a young military man, looking out at the river and trying his damnedest to remember the commands he'll need to lead his men.
A simple, elegant black stone monument that marks the final stop on the biggest funeral procession the country had - and probably has - ever seen.

Think of the place as a bit like improvised hospice for the dying president.
