Long Description:

A 12' by 4' by 4' bronze statue of the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, stands on a 6.75' by 4' square granite base. A slender Lincoln is standing upright and wearing a knee length coat, vest and a bow tie. His arms are by his sides and he is holding a sheet of paper in his right hand.
