Default Abraham Lincoln's Tomb

Located on the north end of Springfield, Illinois (state capitol) the tomb of President Lincoln is quite impressive. Note the people near the base of the structure to get an idea of its size.

#2 a closer perspective with Lincoln's bust in front of the tomb. Thousands of visitors have rubbed his nose, perhaps for good luck, which has brightened it considerably.

#3 yet another angle. Definitely a site worth visiting. Springfield also houses Lincoln's Presidential Library, the most frequently visited of all the U.S. presidential libraries. Dedicated only about 5 years ago.

Nice shots Walter, It's on my list of places to see. Quite an impressive tomb for an equally impressive man, well deserved.
