Abraham Lincoln's Tomb

Picture 5 of 8

A closer view of the sculptures. You can see, clockwise from the base; a bust of Abraham Lincoln created by sculptor Gutzon Borglum; the Infantry Group, a gift from the city of Chicago; the Standing Lincoln, depicting Abraham Lincoln as president; and the Cavalry Group, donated by the city of Boston.

Below the Lincoln statue, there's a small, irregular stone from a Roman tomb which has a Latin inscription. The translation reads, "To Abraham Lincoln, President for the second time of the American Republic, citizens of Rome present this stone from the wall of Servius Tullius by which the memory of each of those brave advocates of liberty may be associated."
