Description

This postcard features the heroic-sized, bronze statue of President Abraham Lincoln, done by sculptor Charles Keck, located in Wabash, Indiana. The statue was commissioned by Wabash-native Alexander New and donated to the city of Wabash, Indiana, in 1932. President Lincoln is depicted seated on a rock with his head slightly bowed and with his forearms resting on his knees and his right foot extended slightly over the base. Inscribed on the front of the granite pedestal are the words "Lincoln, with malice toward none, with charity for all." The Wabash County Courthouse is visible behind and to the left of the statue. The image is surrounded by a white border with the caption printed in the bottom margin. The postcard reverse is divided.
