What better way to conclude your night than with Abe Lincoln? That’s how pop-country star Taylor Swift ended her first evening in Washington, D.C.

After finishing up her Tuesday concert at Washington’s Verizon Center, the four-time Grammy Award winner made her way to the Lincoln Memorial to pose next to the late president’s statue with some friends.

“After the show, we went to see Abe!! Pretty magical,” the 21-year-old songstress tweeted at around 2:00 a.m. ET, linking to a picture of her in a white dress at the historic monument.

This was a significant rite of passage for Swift, as the recording artist had skipped her school’s Lincoln Memorial class field trip during junior high.

“It was my first time seeing the Lincoln Memorial up close (missed the school trip in 8th grade cause I had a show),” Swift tweeted. (Seven members of Congress to hold fundraisers at Taylor Swift concert)

Last week, The Daily Caller reported that seven members of Congress would hold fundraisers at Swift’s August 2 and 3 Verizon Center concerts. Of the batch of politicians, six are Republicans.

The chart topping singer has one remaining D.C. show on Wednesday.
