Architect Henry Bacon modeled the Lincoln Memorial after the Greek Parthenon. It has 36 Doric columns that represent the states of the Union at the time of Lincoln's assassination in 1865. The names of the 48 states at the time of the Memorial's completion are inscribed along the building's frieze.
A scrambler is a program that chops up an image and scrambles up the pieces (requires the java plugin). The object of the game is to swap 2 pieces at a time until all pieces end up in position to form the completed picture. These scramblers all come with a 4 minute timer. Can you beat the clock? These games require a keen eye for detail. Now that you've created the picture, can you find out more information about this monument?
