The Lincoln statue at Centre College commemorates the many ties Lincoln had to this campus. Lincoln’s first law partner, two of his wife’s brothers, and his judge advocate general during the Civil War all attended school here. In addition, John C. Breckinridge, who ran against Lincoln for president in 1860, also graduated from Centre. Today, the Lincoln statue on the Centre campus reflects the president’s ideals and commemorates his connections to the college.
