President Abraham Lincoln dictates to John Hay, his personal secretary during the Civil War, who is seated a few feet from where Lincoln stands. Lincoln pauses to tell the future Secretary of State and Ambassador to Great Britain, a story and perhaps pass along insights from an elder statesman.
With the figure of Lincoln standing nine feet, six inches tall, this bronze sculpture, titled "A Learning Moment," demonstrates the Carthage College philosophy of personal connection in education. This, and Hay being a graduate of the midwest liberal arts college, is why this heroic-sized bronze sculpture was installed on its Kenosha, Wisconsin campus in 1997.
Happy President's Day!
