This famous monument in Washington, D.C., honors the Great Emancipator, 16th U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, with a 19-foot marble statue under a 99-foot-tall structure modeled after the Greek Parthenon. Completed in 1922, this monument is one of the most-visited national park sites in the country, and includes murals, inscriptions from two of Lincoln’s speeches, and fluted Doric columns representing the 36 states in the union at the time of his death.
