World's largest Abe Lincoln statue

The fiberglass Great Emancipator stads at 62-feet tall in Ashmore, Illinois. The location, in the center of the state, is the final resting place of the structure that moved around a bit. If you want to see him head to 9699 County Road 2000. It's free. Just head east of Charleston on Rte. 16, behind the raceway to the north, along the Embarras River.
