Every year, New-York Historical’s beloved statues of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass get into the Hallowe’en spirit! This year, they need costumes for our Beyond Spooky: Hallowe’en Family Party where we’ll be celebrating our exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere. So, what should they wear? Vote below and visit the Museum for our party on Sunday, October 27, to see which outfits win!

UPDATE: Voting has ended. Be sure to join us on Oct. 27 and see the winning costumes in person!
Pair 1: Teapot (Lincoln) & Teacup (Douglass)
Patriot and silversmith Paul Revere was known for his revolutionary spirit and his elegant tea sets, so Lincoln and Douglass could dress for a Tea Party.
Pair 2: Horse (Lincoln) & Midnight Sky (Douglass)
In honor of Revere’s midnight ride, our duo could dress as his trusty steed, Brown Beauty, and the star-filled night sky.
Pair 3: Mummy (Lincoln) & Skeleton (Douglass)
Should they wear a couple of Halloween classics to give passersby a good scare?
