The five sculptured panels of the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial illustrate the steps in Abraham Lincoln’s life that brought him from small cabin life in Kentucky and Indiana to the White House.
The childhood years of Lincoln at Sinking Spring and Knob Creek farms (1809 to 1816):
The boyhood days of Lincoln (1816 to 1830):
The years of political ascendancy (1830-1861):
The years of command (1861-1865):
“And now he belongs to the ages.”
And gladden with the view:
And still as mem’ries crowd my brain,
There’s sadness in it too.
-Abraham Lincoln, 1845
