(OLNEY) A high-quality reproduction of a famous Abraham Lincoln photograph will be presented to the Richland County Courthouse on this Monday, October 1st. The unveiling ceremony will take place at 4:30 this afternoon in the Courthouse at 103 West Main Street in Olney. The event is open to the public. Those who are unable to attend today’s ceremony are encouraged to make plans to visit the Courthouse during regular hours in the days or weeks to come to view the historic portrait. The photograph was taken in Springfield by well-known photographer Alexander Hesler on June 3, 1860, for Lincoln’s 1860 presidential campaign. In fact, historians consider Hesler’s portrait one of the best taken of Lincoln during his pre-presidential years. The permanent installation is made possible by donations from the Illinois Judges Association (IJA), the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA), and their respective foundations. Richland County’s resident Circuit Judge Larry Dunn says “It is particularly fitting that we commemorate this historic event in the city where Abraham Lincoln and his rival, Stephen A. Douglas, spoke to political meetings during the hotly contested campaign in 1856.” All are invited out to this afternoon’s ceremony in Olney.
