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.


Fido - Abraham Lincoln's Dog, the first president's dog to be photographed, was also murdered like his master. A year after Lincoln's death, Fido went to lick the face of a drunk passed out. The drunk woke and seeing a dog, not knowing he was friendly to all, stabbed him to death!
