This photo of Idaho’s historic statue of Abraham Lincoln, which dates back to 1915, is shown last June before it was restored and moved to a higher-profile location just south of the state Capitol. The newly refurbished statue is scheduled to be unveiled in a grand ceremony at noon on Feb. 12, Lincoln’s 200th birthday. Idaho schoolchildren raised $3,000 in a “Pennies for Lincoln” campaign to help fund the project.
