En México tenemos un monumento del presidente Norteamericano Abraham Lincoln, en Tijuana, por qué?, aquí la respuesta. (In Mexico we have a monument of the North American president Abraham Lincoln, in Tijuana, why? Here is the answer.)
Actually, statues of Lincoln are found in parks throughout Mexico–particularly in major cities such as Tijuana, Juarez, Guadalajara, and Mexico City –and many schools are named after him. The reason he is honored in Mexico as perhaps the most respected US president is that he opposed the Mexican-American War as a Congressman, and supported Mexico’s fight against European occupation forces in the 1860s as President. And in the United States, statues of Mexican president Benito Juarez are in some cities, including San Diego. The two presidents shared a mutual goal of making Mexico and the USA good neighbors.
The book Abraham Lincoln and Mexico examines his legacy and identifies many of the sites honoring Lincoln throughout the country.
