Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Built to honor President Abraham Lincoln, the memorial is an imposing marble structure located in Washington D.C. Since its completion in 1922, it has been a popular tourist spot, visited by 3,000,000 people annually. After Lincoln, the 16th president, was assassinated, Americans wanted a memorial. Years later, money was granted for this impressive building. Designed by Henry Bacon, it is in the style of the famous Greek Parthenon. Located at the west end of the Mall, the memorial is in line with the Capitol and the Washington Monument. A nineteen-foot tall seated statue of the president is the focal point of the main room. Excellent historical and color photographs, a glossary, timeline, and additional sources are included. As part of the "National Landmarks" series, the book gives many facts about the famous building. Simple text makes this an ideal source for young readers. 2002, Bridgestone Books/Capstone Press,
