Bibliography for Series on Barnard's Lincoln Statue

Part one
Part two
Part three

As I researched and wrote whst became three separate posts on this statue, I found a lot of information about It and its controversies, much more than I expected. At this point, I have to wonder if I was the last person to realize the firestorm this monument caused. 

I decided not to use endnotes since this was a blog entry, but, in hindsight, perhaps I should have once it became so long. Most of these sources are already linked and/or mentioned in the posts about this statue, but here are the various sources from which I gathered information for my story. Some of these have other details that I did not use.

In addition to Percoco's book, the article by Adam I.P. Smith is especially fascinating. It helped me quite a bit, but also goes well beyond what I needed for my story. It  is an interesting look at Lincoln's memory and image from an English perspective. I highly recommend it.

Additional helpful information

In addition to the Tafts, the Lytle family was also an old and well-known Cincinnati family, including poet and Civil War General William Haines Lytle. The family name remains around town on Lytle Park (home also of the Taft Museum), Lytle Tunnel, Lytle Tower and One Lytle Place apartment building.
