Abe Lincoln, the Postmaster, delivering mail on the Post Road in
New Salem area on the 150th anniversary of Abe Lincoln, the Postmaster.
Lincoln, delivering mail along the Post Road at New Salem. This
art work was designed to make buttons as a memento for those walking
the 22 miles from New Salem to Springfield over the old Post Road.
The art work inspired
a bronze and silver medal with ribbon, using this artwork to cast
these medals. Only a few were distributed because the weather was
approximately 1001 and the humidity was very high, so very few people
completed the 22 miles. All remaining medals were destroyed. Researched
by Dr. Wayne Temple.
