Lincoln in Charleston

This statue, Lincoln Walks at Midnight, stands in front of the West Virginia Capitol Building in Charleston, West Virginia. It depicts Lincoln deliberating adding West Virginia to the Union during the American Civil War. West Virginia is the only state that was born out of the Civil War. I like both the realism of the statue and the contrast to our stereotypical Lincoln.
