There will be a small ceremony at
Postville Park in Lincoln on Monday at 5:30 p.m. for the burial of
the broken pieces of the old Civil War statue that the wind blew
down at the end of December 2008. This old Civil War monument was
dedicated on June 10, 1869. The new bronze statue was dedicated a
year ago, on April 9, 2011.
Plans are now being made by the same committee to erect a bronze
statue of Abraham Lincoln on the west side of the courthouse
grounds. Lincoln spoke to a crowd of over 5,000 people in front of
the 1857 Logan County Courthouse on Oct. 16, 1858.
meeting of the Abraham Lincoln statue committee will be on April 17
at 7 p.m. at the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society
Center, 114 N. Chicago St. in Lincoln.
