President Lincoln (Abraham Lincoln) and his son Tad, David French - MMW006286
This reproduction of Abraham Lincoln and his son, Tad, is by the sculptor David Frech. The United States Historical Society commissioned the bronze life-sized statue and donated it to the National Park Service. It is located at the Tredegar site of the Civil War Visitor Center in Richmond, Virginia, where the President came in peace "to bind up the nation's wounds" at the end of the Civil War. As a journalist who witnessed the visit reported, the president came not as a conqueror, not with bitterness in his heart, but with kindness. He came as a friend, to alleviate sorrow and sufferingto rebuild what has been destroyed.
