Hannibal Hamlin Statue at Kenduskaeg Parkway

Hannibal Hamlin was the Vice-President during Abraham Lincoln's first term as the President of United States between from 1861 and 1865. Prior to his election, he had also served as the Governor of Maine and a House of Representatives member in Congress.

N.B.: I'm back from my self-imposed hiatus. Hopefully, I will continue to feel inspired to go out and take/make beautiful photos for the blog.

I'm trying to remember my American History, but this statue's name doesn't ring a bell! I like the statue though.
