Abraham Lincoln - 1860 - Springfield

39. The first of two photographs (see #40) taken by John Adams Whipple of Lincoln’s home in Springfield, IL during the summer of 1860. Lincoln stands on the porch behind the railing with his son Willie. His younger son, Tad, who has seven at the time, can barely be seen peeking out behind the post at Willie’s left.
