THE ONLY KNOWN PHOTOGRAPH OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN AT GETTYSBURG

National Archives Photograph
This photograph was discovered in 1952 among a collection of Mathew Brady negatives in the National Archives. It's quite hazy, but that is President Lincoln in the center of the crowd. To read David Wills' personal invitation to Mr. Lincoln to stay overnight at his home in Gettysburg, CLICK HERE.

NOTE: In November 2007 historian John Richter announced his discovery of two other images that arguably show Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg in 1863.
