Last week I posted a brief comment about the controversial efforts to move the Lincoln statue in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park to a more prominent position in Grand Army Plaza. The controversy is that doing so as planned would entail moving an already existing memorial (below) to renowned physician Dr. Alexander Skene. The story has crossed the Pond to Skene’s native Scotland.
