Lincoln Parken

One Saturday earlier this spring KJ and I stumbled across a statue of Abe Lincoln in Frogner Park which seemed rather unusual. Then I read the print on it which said... Presented To Norway By The People of North Dakota. I can see why North Dakotans might have a statue in honor of Norway since many of us have Scandinavian ancestry but why did they choose Abe Lincoln? If anyone has any knowledge of this I'd love to know. I guess I could do my own research. For now I'll just enjoy the statue in one of my favorite places to hang out in Oslo.
