Rare Photo of Lincoln Discovered
Just saw this in the SF Chronicle. There are only about 125 known photos of Abraham Lincoln. Two new ones have just been discovered, including this one. It is believed that this photo shows a stove-pipe hatted Lincoln on horseback (in profile facing to the left) at Gettysberg to deliver his famous address in 1863. Wow! Full story here. Click photo to enlarge. The second photo is taken shortly after the first and shows Lincoln saluting or waving to the troops with his white gloved left hand. Both can be seen at this Civil War page.
