Lincoln: the man, the city, the statue. This statue, and the etched Gettysburg Address, are in front of the Nebraska Capitol Building.

Although you quite obviously lack pictures of it, there is plenty more Lincoln stuff in Illinois. The city of Lincoln, IL is about two hours north of St. Louis, or a half-hour north of the state capital of Springfield, on I-55. It doesn't have a lot of historical sites associated with him, but both Springfield and Vandalia (an hour east of St. Louis on I-70) are full of those.

Yes... more accurately, I could have said: "Lincoln: the man (but not the one I think of as "Lincoln" most often), the city (one of several with the same name), the statue (one of many)." I don't have any particular Lincoln fetish; I just lived there. But thanks for the info. :)
