"Earlier that year--several months before Lincoln was assassinated--the Board of Education named a new San Francisco public boys school after the sitting president. The "Lincoln School" on Fifth, near Market Street, was named on January 13, 1865, and was dedicated six months later in June. Later the next year, the school was to set another milestone in honor of Lincoln when it received (sculptor Pietro) Mezzara's Lincoln statue.

At Mezzara's request, the re-unveiling of his plaster statue of Abraham Lincoln was deferred until the first anniversary of Lincoln 's assassination. So the statue was dedicated at 10 o'clock on the morning of April 14, 1866."

Thank you - Anita, Gene, and Roger for doing all of this.

I thought that the most amazing fact of the whole story was the following:

George W. R. King, son of James King, was a Lincoln School student who had had the fortune of shaking President Lincoln's hand on April 11, 1865, when George was in Washington. So he was one of the students selected to pull the flag that covered the statue.
