Abraham Lincoln - November 1863 - Washington DC

76. The first of five photographs (see #77-80) taken by Alexander Gardner in Washington on November 8, 1863. Here Lincoln sits with his two personal secretaries, John Hay and John Nicolay. This series was taken eleven days before Lincoln would visit the site of the Battle of Gettysburg to deliver his famous Gettysburg Address.
