Abraham Lincoln was born in Hancock County, Kentucky, although Illinois claims him because he represented their 7th district in Congress. Colonel Harland Sanders was born in Indiana, but put Kentucky on the map with the fried chicken recipe he developed. Secretariat, at the far right, was foaled in Virginia, but the 1973 Triple Crown winner lived most of his life at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky. The mural was painted by artist Margaret Morely in 2013."
