A Look at Abraham Lincoln in D.C.

This post will be loaded with photos so don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I’m joining Jenny for Alphabe-Thursday for the Letter L.

I’m gathering all my photos that I took while I was in D.C. in May of Abraham Lincoln. I’ll start with the less obvious views around D.C. and end with the Lincoln Memorial.

The spot where life ended tragically for our 16th President.

I’m adding humorous quotes from here on out from President Lincoln.

From the National Portrait Gallery…

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

“He can compress the most words into the smallest ideas better than any man I ever met.”

“When I hear a man preach, I like to see him act as if he were fighting bees.”

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

“When you have got an elephant by the hind leg, and he is trying to run away, its best to let him run.”

“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”

Hope your summer is swimming along. We are enjoying some happy weather here in the Northwest!

  1. We’re getting some lovely weather too!! Thank You Lord!

    Love your pics – esp the night-time ones – I notice that Dear has a cane – did I miss something?

    Love the 4th pictures too – Katie looks sweet on Skype – I’ve seen those looks with some of mine too :)

  2. Abe Lincoln is one of my heroes. Oh where are the ‘honest Abe’s’ today? Ah well, thanks for the pictures and quotes. Perfect timing as we celebrate Independence Day!

  3. I love your photos of the Lincoln Memorial at night. My son went to college nearby and we would often walk over to the Lincoln Memorial when we visited him. We love Washington, DC!

  4. Thanks for letting us tag along. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to DC, and your post was a lovely little refresher!

    Some of those monuments just bring tears to my eyes.

    Thank you for sharing your trip with us.

    A+
