— A National Trust Historic Site —

President Lincoln and his family lived in this country home for over a quarter of his presidency. Escorted by his cavalry guard, Lincoln rode to the White House every morning either on horseback or by carriage, and returned here each evening to rejoin his family and friends, meet with visitors and colleagues and reflect on military strategy and emancipation. This sculpture captures a moment in his daily life during those years.

Dedicated February 12, 2009 in recognition of the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth.

Made possible by the generosity of Robert H. Smith.

Sculpture by Studio EIS, Brooklyn, NY
