Lincoln on Flickr

The Library of Con­gress has added a series of images to Flickr that will “let you see how Lin­coln looked over 20 years—from the ear­li­est known pho­to­graph­ic like­ness in 1846, through the U.S. pres­i­den­tial cam­paign of 1860, and the pres­sures of the Civ­il War years. Views from Lincoln’s funer­al in 1865 and por­traits of his imme­di­ate fam­i­ly are also includ­ed.”
