A short piece highlighting the famous speech Lincoln gave at Gettysburg after the great battle was done.
This guy apparently used 1,702 pennies to make a portrait of Lincoln. Sorting the coins took about seven hours, and making the image took just under six. I suppose its not any more time consuming that a painting.
The narrator's name is the late Paul Frees. His distinctive voice can also be heard in several other Disney attractions such as "Haunted Mansion" (narrator), and "Adventure thru Inner Space" (narrator).
In 1965, the figure constantly went into spasms in mid-performance. After thoroughly checking the robot's electrical system, maintenance realized that the show's power supply was fed by the same sub station that fed 600 volts to
the Monorail. Whenever the Monorail, ran in these sections, there would be a power surge, causing Lincoln to spasm. Surge suppressers didn't work, so Lincoln's power line was run under Town Square and linked to another sub station behind City Hall.
This was the first Disney attraction to show on both coasts simultaneously: New York Worlds Fair and Disneyland

Both men were admired by many but actually hated by those who opposed their political views.
