There’s A 14-Foot Statue Of Abraham Lincoln In Kentucky And You Really Need To Check It Out
Honest Abe has deep ties to the Bluegrass State, a point of pride for many Kentuckians and a fascinating topic for historians. If you know anything about Kentucky history, then hopefully you know that Abraham Lincoln was born in the Bluegrass State. There are many dedicated areas where you can learn about Lincoln’s early life in the Bluegrass, from the Lincoln Homestead State Park to a replica of his birthplace at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park in Hodgenville. Kentucky’s capital city, too, is home to an homage to the 16th U.S. President. Nestled in the hallowed halls of the Kentucky State Capitol, there is a 14-foot statue of Abraham Lincoln; a commanding monolith that you really need to see in person.
