The Lincoln Memorial, located on the most western end of DC's National Mall, is an awe inspiring homage to our 16th President. Visitor's revel in not only the acute detail of Lincoln, but also in the elegance of the architecture. “In this temple, as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever.” So reads the inscription above the “The Great Emancipator” and 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Designed by Henry Bacon, and sculpted by Daniel Chester French, construction began on February 12, 1915, Lincoln’s birthday. The Lincoln Memorial was dedicated by President Warren G. Harding on May 30, 1922. On one wall of the memorial the “Gettysburg Address” is inscribed, and on the other, Lincoln’s second inaugural address.
