Erected as a memorial to the 16th president of the United States, the Lincoln Memorial became the site of key moments in American history, particularly during the civil rights movement of the 1960s. As Abraham Lincoln made history with the Emancipation Proclamation, the monument built in his honor was the site of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech. With color photographs and illustrations, as well as direct quotes from those who were there, The Lincoln Memorial explores the monument's construction and its significance as a site of great events in U.S. history.
