With an engaging text and handsome watercolour illustrations, this volume reveals fascinating details about the Lincoln Memorial's construction (the 36 columns encircling the building represent the states in the Union at the time of Lincoln's death), historic events that took place on site (Martin Luther King Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream' speech), plus a treasure trove of fascinating trivia about Lincoln himself and the iconic sculpture that represents him (the final statue was carved in twenty-eight different pieces).
