FIGURE OF THE WEEK #79: Abraham Lincoln in Miniature

To commemorate of the 150th Anniversary of the death of President Lincoln we present different variations of Lincoln toy soldiers. Left to right we have the Marx plastic figure from the 1960s, a traditional style Lincoln from Wm Hocker Toy Soldiers, a current production Lincoln from W Britains and a russian produced Lincoln from the 1990s. Abraham Lincoln is one of America’s greatest heroes because of his unique appeal. His is a remarkable story of the rise from humble beginnings to achieve the highest office in the land; then, a sudden and tragic death at a time when his country needed him most to complete the great task remaining before the nation. His distinctively human and humane personality and historical role as savior of the Union and emancipator of the slaves creates a legacy that endures. His eloquence of democracy, and his insistence that the Union was worth saving embody the ideals of self-government that all nations strive to achieve. We are proud to make Lincoln our FOTW.
