Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
A monument to the American history, Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials is the final resting place of one of the most distinguished presidents and a memorial to those who died for their country. The exterior design of the tomb features a 36 m (117 ft) obelisk, a statue of the president, and four statues of the military branches from the Civil War: infantry, cavalry, artillery, and navy. At the entrance, rub the nose on the sculpture of Lincoln's head for good luck. The interior is adorned with marble and bronze statues and excerpts from Lincoln's speeches. The president, his wife, and three of his sons are buried at the tomb. Close to the tomb, you also can see war memorials for Illinois residents who died in World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars.
