Great Figures of Mr. Lincoln

One of the single greatest personalities from all of history has to be America's sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln. From his humble beginnings to his role in re-unification of the United States after a long and bloody civil war, Lincoln holds a special place within the hearts of practically all his countrymen and has been honored with a place within many of the worlds wax museums. 

In honor of his 206th Birthday, and in dedication of all that he represented and stood for, I share these pictures from various wax museums, both current and lost, of this great man.
