Abraham Lincoln, Modern Photograph, O-86, black & white
Black & White, Modern 8 x 10 Print O-26
Mathew Brady, Washington, January 8, 1864.
The Solitary Pine photo of Lincoln, so called from an observation made by Francis Grierson, upon seeing Lincoln at the Lincoln Douglas Debates. Lincoln, he said, “rose from his seat, stretched his long, bony limbs upwards as if to get them in working order and stood like some solitary pine on a lonely summit.”
Also on this day, Lincoln submitted a treaty with the Chippewa Native Americans to the Senate. He also wrote a personal thank you note to Mrs. Ester Stockton. In her 84 years of life, she had knitted around 300 pairs of socks for soldiers.
8 x 10, matte finish, our Lincoln Photographs are created from a period negative or print.
