Designed by Henry Bacon in the form of a Greek Doric temple, the memorial was dedicated in 1922 by President Warren G. Harding. The colossal sculpture of a seated Lincoln by Daniel Chester French in the interior is nearly 20 feet high. The wide steps of the memorial facing the Washington Monument have been the scene of many historic rallies and events.
