Where the Lincoln Legacy Began
Springfield, KY, “where the Lincoln legacy began,” is rich in the Lincoln family history, as well as Civil War history.
Abraham Lincoln’s parents wed in 1806 in the Beechland area of Washington County 4 miles from Springfield near what is now the Lincoln Homestead State Park. In honor of Lincoln a sculpture by artist Paula B. Slater, from Hidden Valley Lake, California was commissioned and sits in front of the Washington County Judicial Center. Its title, “In Sacred Union,” reflects two themes: Lincoln’s dedication to uniting our country after the Civil War and also the union of his parents Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks. Across the street from the sculpture in the 1816 Courthouse will be the “A. Lincoln Legacy Museum”, opening April 12, 2013.
