The Lincoln Memorial

Who Designed It

I am doing the Lincoln Memorial. There are actually two statues but I am going to start with the most famous one. The one in Washington D.C. is the most famous one and Henry Bacon designed the Lincoln Memorial.

Who Carved It

So I told you about Henry Bacon designing, but did you know Daniel Chester French carved the statue? Yes, Daniel Chester French carved it. I bet it took awhile. I think Daniel did a great job.

What it was Made Of

The Lincoln Memorial was made out of twenty -eight gleaming white blocks of marble. Yes, white marble. The Lincoln Memorial was recently spray painted but was cleaned off.
