In Doric Hall on the second floor of the current Massachusetts statehouse, you will find this bronze bust by Leonard Volk. Lincoln sat for the sculptor in 1860, who used a life mask to make an accurate likeness of his then-beardless subject.
The bust is centered over a bronze tablet containing the text of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. The memorial was presented in March 1912 by the Women's Relief Corps, Department of Massachusetts.
Abraham Lincoln February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War—its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
