Richmond, Virginia: Abe and Tad Lincoln Statue

A bronze Abe and son Tad sit on a bench. Titled. "To Bind up the Nation's Wounds," the sculpture by David Frech was inspired by the pair's visit to Richmond -- the former Confederate capitol -- just a week before the President was assassinated. Moved to this out-of-sight spot in January 2023.
