This is to the right, in the traffic circle in Gettysburg, when you are coming from the Battlefield. The detail on these statues is unbelievable. We had to touch Perry Como's sweater to see if it was real!

The artist, Seward Johnson has an identical but giant-sized version at Grounds for Sculpture in NJ.

The statue definitely looks like Perry Como, but "Perry" is holding the Gettysburg Address and is supposed to be a visitor. However it is the most realistic statue of Lincoln, so I'd definitely recommend it.

Perry Como, relatively unknown for his work as a Lincoln scholar....

Perry, Abe and me.

Time Warp: Abe Lincoln Meets Perry Como

"Chillin' with Abe" is what this should be titled. Right in the main circle that connects town to the adjacent areas.

Abe Lincoln.

Abe Lincoln and Perry Como-Lookalike

Oddly realistic, other than Lincoln being dead and all.
