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.
