*ABRAHAM LINCOLN ~ This artwork of President Abraham Lincoln, his wife, and two sons, Robert and Tad, was found in a family album belonging to Mrs. James Gaines of Philadelphia. Because it shows the entire Lincoln family, it is considered quite rare. Its owner is a descendant of William Wallace, who was married to one of Mary Todd's sisters
Tittled: Abraham Lincoln Date:1860 Artist: Matthew Brady I think this photo is about giving a good image to the president. This image was to also give a face to a name. The way that Lincoln is posing is to show he means business and to show he is proper by the way he is sitting and posing.
