To commemorate the Illinois bicentennial, the Illinois Judges Association and Illinois Judges Foundation boards, the Illinois State Bar Association and Illinois Bar Foundation boards and the Illinois State Historical Society approved a joint project to oversee and pay for the installation of a photograph of lawyer Abraham Lincoln in every one of the state’s
102 counties by the end of 2018.

Several judges gathered Monday at the Grundy County Courthouse in Morris for the unveiling of one of those photographs, according to the IJA website.

The Illinois State Historical Society owns the glass-plate positive image made from an original negative. The beardless Lincoln sat for the Chicago photographer Alexander Hesler in June 1860 in Springfield.
