The Lincoln statue placed on Bascom Hill in 1909 is the only duplicate of an original, cast in 1906, by Adolph Alexander Weinman. The original was given to Hodgenville, Ken., the town of Lincoln's birth. The Abe statue on Bascom is the single replica of Weinman's Lincoln, and is not modeled after the Lincoln statue in Washington, D.C.
