History of the Lincoln Statue
The monument is composed of an over life-sized standing figure of Abraham Lincoln mounted on a tall, stepped granite pedestal, with a life-sized female allegorical figure (representing Liberty) kneeling on the lowest step. Lincoln is looking down his right index finger pointing toward Liberty. He grasps a manuscript in his left hand. Liberty, dressed in a long flowing classical gown holds a stylus in her right hand as if writing the words, "With malice toward none, " which are incised in the granite pedestal. The incised lettering has been filled with lead.
