Mitchell Statue in
New Salem State Park, Illinois

New Salem State Historic Site boasts two equestrian Lincoln statues -- this piece and the one by Anna Hyatt Huntington which stands near the entrance to the park. You can see this small bronze sculpture by Marshall Mitchell in the Visitor Center.

Titled "Out of the Wilderness," the Mitchell work was completed in 1991. It was commissioned by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the Capital Development Board Art in Architecture program.
