Lincoln In Peekskill





This is the 35" bronze model for the life-size monument for Peekskill, NY. President-Elect Lincoln made a  brief train-stop there on Feb 19, 1861 and spoke to a crowd of roughly 1,500 from the back of a baggage cart. The sculpture shows him just about to make that speech; a breeze indicative of the coming winds of war lifts and lightly blows his coat. The vertical posts of the cart are representative of the North and South; the horizontal post - harkening back to Lincoln's rail-splitter youth - connects them....and Lincoln's hand on the railing symbolizes his determination to maintain the Union.
