Lincoln at the Time of the Gettysburg Address

In this extreme blow-up of a photograph taken probably by David Bachrach, the face of Abraham Lincoln can been seen on the speaker's stand at Gettysburg. (He is the bearded man without a hat, looking downwards, a little left and up from center in the photograph.) The exciting discovery of Lincoln's face in this remarkable photograph was made in 1953 by Josephine Cobb of the National Archives.
