Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, USA

Lincoln's theme? Unification.  He held the nation together in the 19th century, when the Union prevailed over the north-south divide.  And in the 20th century, the Lincoln Highway did the same thing: it prevailed over the east-west divide by uniting Atlantic and Pacific, the first motorable road to do so.  Then, we get to the Lincoln penny, another unifier.   [2005]
