Abraham Lincoln - October 1862 - Antietam

65. Taken by Alexander Gardner in Antietam, MD on October 3, 1862, a view similar to #64. Note the bearded man sitting on the ground at lower left holding a sign reading "7479." He was one of Gardner’s assistants holding a newspaper on which he had written a number to identify the photograph after it was developed.
