This is a very famous photo of President Lincoln from February 5th, 1865. The President would be assassinated a short two months later at Ford’s Theatre. I also found a colorized photo of the one taken by Alexander Gardner. Compare the two of them … the colorized one looks amazing, and kind of spooky.

Former slaves in 1916. Each of them more than 100 years old. Such strong and determined faces; could they ever have dreamed of the advances still to come? I hope so.
