Great pictures Bill especially the first one with that beautiful dark blue sky. This is one place among many others that I would like to visit at some point in my life. Thanks for sharing the interesting and informative pictures. David.

On this day in 1865, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, dies from a bullet wound inflicted the night before by John Wilkes Booth. Lincoln's death occurred six days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, effectively ending the American Civil War.

I took this photo of a statue of Abraham Lincoln in 2017 inside his presidential museum in Springfield, Illinois. This artist definitely captured the face of a man which lead a nation through a civil war. Love him or hate him, I personally believe our nation would have crumbled if another man would have been elected to the position of President of the United States of America in 1860.

I took this photo of a statue of Abraham Lincoln last year inside his presidential museum in Springfield, Illinois.

You might be right about that, Bill.
