And here (below) is how Sinking Spring looks today. It's lush and green - and unfortunately closed while we were there. Again, damage done by a winter ice storm has limited access to many Kentucky sites while clean-up is underway.
A wider view of the Memorial Building with the American flag fluttering in the spring breeze. One interesting note: there are 56 steps leading to the memorial, one for each year of Lincoln's life.
This statute of Lincoln is on the town square in Hodgenville, Kentucky. I believe it was placed there about 1909, the centennial of Lincoln's birth.
