Additional Information: 

This button was made in the early 1900s. The image is of the head of the statue in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., which was built between 1914 and 1922. This statue was meant to convey Lincoln's strength and compassion.

Efforts to create a memorial for Abraham Lincoln began in the 1860s after the President's death. Plans to create a memorial were discussed again starting in 1902 under President McKinley, but met with controversy over where to build it and what it should look like.
