The Memorial Building at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park in Hodgenville, Kentucky.  This shrine was dedicated on November 9, 1911 by President William Howard Taft.  The building contains 16 windows, 16 rosettes, and 16 fence poles, representing Abraham Lincoln being our nation's 16th President.   Mike Lynaugh Photography A historical marker for the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace that states, "Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809, in a log cabin near Sinking Spring.  Growing up in rural Kenturcky, his character was shaped by the hard work and tragedy of fronteir life.  As the 16th president, his policies and politics saved the Uninon and ended slavery in the United States."   Mike Lynaugh Photography This reproduction of the one room log cabin that Abraham Lincoln was born in is on display in the memorial building.  The original cabin that Lincoln was born was taken down before 1865, and supposedly the logs were used to build a home nearby this location.  In November 1894 Alfred W. Dennett purchased the Lincoln farm and used the logs from that house to reconstruct a cabin similar to the one Lincoln was born.  Today, historians realize the claim this these logs were from Lincoln's original cabin is false, however it still stands to represent the humble beginnings that Abraham Lincoln came from.
