The Last Picture Taken of
This is a dramatic portrait of Abraham
Lincoln. It was taken on April 10, 1865 . . . four days before his
Assassination. It is interesting to note the look on Lincoln's face.
While four years of Civil War have had a dramatic effect on the facial
features of the president, there is a sense of calm and peace on his
face in this image . . . as if he knows that he has run a good race, and
completed his task.
