The statue shows Lincoln seated holding a law book.


The statue faces the Ohio River which borders Louisville.


Joshua Speed was a close friend of Abraham Lincoln.


The Speed family owned a large hemp plantation called

Farmington which was near Louisville.


Abraham Lincoln ate in the dining room at the Speed home.


Lincoln spent time with the Speeds in their parlor. Joshua’s mother gave him a Bible which encouraged him during the Civil War.


As Lincoln returned to his home in Springfield, Illinois, he traveled on a steamboat from Louisville to St. Louis.


The sight of mistreated slaves seen on his trip home haunted Lincoln.


The trip to Louisville made a tremendous impact on Lincoln.


Abraham Lincoln is viewed by many as our greatest president.


Lincoln never forgot his native state.


In his Second Inaugural Address Lincoln wrote,

“With malice toward none, with charity toward all . . .”


The new Lincoln memorial at the waterfront is the work of Louisville sculptor, Ed Hamilton.


Children climbed on the statue during its dedication on June 4, 2009.
