The Original Lincoln Memorial

Stun and amaze your friends with this 11 x 17 inch rare photograph of the original statue for the Lincoln Memorial. Comes with this description:

This rare photo shows the original sculpture and inscription in the Lincoln Memorial. It features the enraged 16th President demanding subservience from the visitor, which is a departure from the conciliatory tone that many Northern government officials tended to strike when portraying Lincoln. After complaints from visitors that the statue’s cold, lifeless eyes “seemed to follow you wherever you go,” the statue and inscription were altered accordingly.
