    "In this temple, as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever." Beneath these words, the 16th President of the United States, the Great Emancipator and preserver of the nation during the Civil War, sits immortalized in marble. As an enduring symbol of Freedom, the Lincoln Memorial attracts anyone who seeks inspiration and hope.

    The Memorial's steps have been a stage for many significant moments in American history. On August 28, 1963 approximately 250,000 people participated in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, where they heard Martin Luther King, Jr., deliver his memorable speech, "I Have a Dream."

    The Lincoln Memorial is shown on the back of both the United States one cent coin and the five dollar bill, while the front of each bears Lincoln's portrait.
