the outskirts of Kankakee, Illinois, visible from I-57 but not
easily accessible, is the biggest Abe Lincoln weve ever
seen. This guy looms over Kankakee, like a midwestern Rio de
Janeiro Jesus, with a view from 40 feet high. He dwarfs the
Lincoln of Lincoln Memorial fame, who is a paltry 19 feet from
top to bottom (though in D.C. Abes sitting down, so well
call it a tie).
fabrication was underway.
Commander in Chief can hold signs in his left hand. Things like
Support Our Troops, Merry Christmas and
sometimes political statements but Mr. Alexander said that honest
Abe does not use his notices for advertising. The attention he draws
may be another story. While it is true that Abraham Lincoln was
our tallest President, he certainly wasnt this big!
