Pictures and statues of President Abraham Lincoln are scattered across Lincoln Memorial University's campus in Harrogate.
The nation's 16th president never visited Claiborne County, Tennessee. However, Lincoln was very appreciative of East Tennessee's loyalty to the Union during the Civil War.
The president would ask a Civil War general to raise funds to help the people of our region. That money would help create Lincoln Memorial University.
LMU has an entire library and museum devoted to Lincoln.
Live@Five@Four's Stoney Sharp visited the campus for President's Day. The video is attached.
