A central column with a statue of Lincoln at the top, holding a page (supposedly the Emancipation Proclamation). Four soldiers surround him and on the bottom are four reliefs depicting Rochester's contribution to the war. A quite little park that most everybody ignores. Except during the the occupy movement.
During that time the park became our own "Occupy" headquarters. Wall to wall tents, all covered in pigeon poop LOL. Anyway, when I drew this it was hot out. No one was in the park at the time. The monument is a great piece of sculpture and represents an important part of our country's history. But, as most Americas do - it is forgotten.
