Creating the Lincoln Memorial

Harold Holzer gave this presentation on building the Lincoln Memorial at the 2018 Lincoln Forum symposium in Gettysburg, PA.

We learn from the video’s description, “The dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., took place in 1922, almost 60 years after Abraham Lincoln’s death. Harold Holzer talked about his book, Monument Man: The Life and Art of Daniel Chester French, which examines the life of the sculptor best known for the statue of Lincoln that serves as the memorial’s centerpiece. This talk took place at the annual Lincoln Forum symposium.”
