The Lincoln Memorial is a national monument built to honor the 16th President of 
the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National
Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument.

William H. Taft – who was then Chief Justice of the United States – dedicated the
Memorial and presented it to President Warren G. Harding, who  accepted it on
behalf of the American people. Lincoln’s only surviving son, 78-year-old Robert
Todd Lincoln, was in attendance.

 
Today, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
