The Abraham Lincoln Caper: A Tale of Two Lincolns

John Denison Crocker's Lincoln

My Lincoln


The town of Norwich, CT is sponsoring a contest: the idea is to copy the painting on the left, which was stolen from City Hall in 1994 and never seen again. Norwich cares very much about this painting because Lincoln gave a speech there in 1860 as a Presidential candidate, and because a local artist painted the portrait.

The best copy wins and will be bought by the town and displayed in the original frame.

How am I doing?
