There was also quite a lot of Lincoln. Well, it was Lincoln Park after all, so you'd expect a large statue of the man, but his deathbed was in the nearby museum as well as his death mask and other personal items. He gets everywhere, that man. When I was looking up the tree I started this post with, amongst all the other information I learned that the young Abe spent a lot of time splitting rails and fence posts from black locust logs. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that back home he had to sweep up the leaves too.
