The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. The exterior of the Memorial echoes a classic Greek temple. The structure measures 189.7 by 118.5 feet (57.8 by 36.1 m) and is 99 feet (30 m) tall. It is surrounded by a peristyle of 36 fluted Doric columns, one for each of the 36 states in the Union at the time of Lincoln’s death.
