Found it ArtMan found SPRINGFIELD LINCOLN MONUMENT

Friday, 08 June 2012

Paid my respects at the tomb of Mr. Lincoln after visiting the excellent Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Photo taken from near the tomb of Gov. John R. Tanner.

A note about the flag flying at half-staff in the photo. State law now requires this honor for three days after service members are killed in the line of duty. On this day, flags were lowered in honor of Marine Lance Cpl. Joshua E. Witsman, who died May 30 in Afghanistan.
