The Return Visit Statue in Gettysburg Pennsylvania USA
USA

In the heart of downtown Gettysburg, Pennsylvania stands a 6 foot, 4 inch tall. 700 pound bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln. He is gesturing with his hat to a 400 pound bronze sculpture of a modern day tourist to the Wills House, the bright red brick building as if to show the tourist where the president of the United States during the Civil War stayed the night before he delivered his famous Gettysburg Address in November of 1863.


This representation of Abraham Lincoln by sculptor J. Steward Johnson was commissioned by the Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania and is the most accurate statue of Lincoln ever created. J. Stewart Johnson is an American sculptor born in 1930 and famous for his painted bronze statues as well as his most dramatic work “The Awakening”.

The David Wills house is now a National Park Service museum with seven galleries dedicated to the aftermath of Lincoln’s visit and the battle of Gettysburg.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
