I must admit it; I was shocked when I came across Lincoln Square. I was shocked because having lived in Europe for so long, the only US presidents that you see honored with a statue or a street named after them are Kennedy (not sure why), Roosevelt and Wilson.
Abraham Lincoln is one of our greatest presidents and the British know it! They have honored him in the city of Manchester not only by dedicating a statue to him but also naming the whole square after him.
Well done, mates!
