Return Visit Statue


Return Visit

In 1991, the Fellowship placed a sculpture of Abraham Lincoln entitled "Return Visit" in front of the Wills House on the square in Gettysburg. Mr. Lincoln is portrayed as pointing toward the room of the Wills' House where he finished writing the Gettysburg Address. Created by noted historian J. Seward Johnson Jr., this life size bronze statue may be the most realistic representation of Abraham Lincoln in existence.
