Speech by Lincoln in 1880 Cowboy Town

Buffalo Ridge, South Dakota

Abe in 1880 Cowboy Town.

Loopiest Lincoln Landmarks.

Lincoln never visited the then Dakota Territory, and was long dead by 1880, but that didn't stop the 1880 Cowboy Town tourist attraction from concocting an amazing animated Abe exhibit. The owner counseled us before we entered that Abe's "eyes had gone wonky;" even forewarned, the clanky robotic motion and the hat freaked us out.
