Abraham Lincoln - July 1864

103. Taken by Frank Pulsifer near Washington DC on July 11, 1864. This long-lost photograph shows Lincoln standing on the deck of the Coast Guard ship “Wayanda” cruising in the Potomac River. The two men seated to Lincoln’s right are John White, the ship’s captain, and William Seward (in the white hat), Lincoln’s Secretary of State.
