Trivia Quesiton: What word is misspelled on the Lincoln Memorial?

Emancipation

Future

Proclamation

 

The answer is: Future

Answer: An engraver made a big “oops” while working on the Lincoln Memorial. Chiseled into the stone of the north wall you will find Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, which he delivered less than two months after the passing of the Emancipation Proclamation. In his speech, Lincoln expressed his “high hope for the future”. But to hear the engraver tell it, Lincoln was concerned about his “high hope for the euture.”
