My father-in-law is in town for the birth of our son (pictures coming soon!) and going to all the sites of D.C. I noticed in his tour book that the Lincoln Memorial is dedicated as a "Temple."
Engraved directly over the head of Lincoln (not visible in the picture) are the words:
AS IN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE
FOR WHOM HE SAVED THE UNION
THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN
IS ENSHRINED FOREVER
Lincolnian Hyper-Dulia? Anybody know the story behind this?
