The inside story

The Lincoln Memorial serves as a testament to the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Located at the National Mall in Washington D.C., the memorial was designed by architect Henry Bacon. The Lincoln Memorial's construction finished in 1922 and welcomes more than 7 million visitors a year.

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, 1865, near the end of the Civil War. He is known as an icon of national heritage and known for his strong work ethic to lead the nation. Even though he came from humble beginnings as a poor boy from the frontier against all odds, he became President and remains one of the most beloved leaders of the United States of America.

The Memorial's exterior resembles a Greek temple and features Yule marble. As you explore the interior's three different parts, you will see a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln in the middle, and The Gettysburg Address and his second inauguration address carved into the walls

Numerous Civil Rights Movement events have taken place here, including the famous "I Have A Dream" speech by Martin Luther King Jr on August 28, 1963.

Since 1966, this major tourist attraction has been recognized as a National Register of Historic Places. Standing at almost 80 feet tall and is 188 feet long, the memorial is open to the public 24 hours a day,
