Soon after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865, the Union League Club, a Republican organization founded two years earlier to promote good government, commissioned Henry Kirke Brown to create this commemorative statue. Of the many outdoor portrait statues of Lincoln erected in the United States, this appears to be the first in New York City.
