Abraham Lincoln statue to move to Dayton VA campus

DAYTON — The Abraham Lincoln statue, planned for the Dayton VA, is scheduled for relocation from Urbana at 11 a.m. on June 16.

Artist Mike Major’s studio currently houses the life-size sculpture of Lincoln, seated with a pen and legislation he signed creating the National Soldier’s and Sailor’s Asylum for Veterans which is today’s Dayton VA.

Major also created the Lincoln statue on Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton.

The statue will be moved to Copp Systems on Keowee Street. Plans call for the Lincoln statue to be dedicated on the Dayton VA grounds later this year.

In the instance of rain, the Lincoln sculpture will be moved at a later, yet to be decided date.
