About this title


Describes the history, planning, and creation of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C., profiling the important people involved as well as discussing Lincoln's place in American history and the important celebrations that have taken place at the Memorial.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-This slim volume is filled with facts. Brent Ashabranner opens with comments on the millennium celebration at the site and his emotional reaction to the memorial. He then presents a brief biographical sketch of President Lincoln that concentrates on the leader's actions and speeches concerning slavery and the Union, and a discussion of how and when the Lincoln Memorial bill was signed into law. Separate chapters are dedicated to Henry Bacon, the memorial's architect; Daniel Chester French, the sculptor; and the ideas they incorporated into the design of the work. The book concludes with information on the steps taken to preserve the site. The volume includes the text of the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation and a fact page that lists the dimensions and cost of the building and statue. Numerous color and black-and-white photographs, both recent and archival, illustrate this title. Older students may prefer Ernest Goldstein's more comprehensive The Statue Abraham Lincoln (Lerner, 1997).
