RE: Extra Credit Questions
Yes, Linda. Somehow I thought you might be the one to get this question!!

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Roger, does the photo have a date on it? I would guess it was taken about 1850. Is there another photo in the booklet of Fanny, Will and their dad that was taken at the same time?

Linda, it does say c.1850 for the photo. The booklet does have your avatar, but it does not have the other photo you asked about.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
This is a photo of Will, Seward and Fanny which was probably taken at the same time as the photo of Mrs. Seward and her three sons. I found it on the Seward House website. http://sewardhouse.org/gallery/

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Wrong Lincoln picture of head on body. Is that even Lincoln's body? Anyway, wrong head for picture! Must be the work of Zombies!

RE: Extra Credit Questions
You get part credit, Bill. Very good.

However, for full credit, whose body is it?

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Dare I say Seward, since we've been discussing the Seward statue with Lincoln's body?

Linda,

I find it strange that Fanny Seward is in such a simple play dress in the photo of her at her father's knee. Even her hair is plain and simple for a formal photo.

I realize that the Sewards were probably photographed more than the average person of their day, but it was generally a more important event and one dressed better for the occasion. Fanny almost gives the impression of being a street urchin here (and I mean no disrespect).

RE: Extra Credit Questions
It is not Seward's body. However, it is the body of a well-known 19th century person.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Good guess, but not it. Both Henry Clay and the right answer died in the early 1850's. And it isn't Daniel Webster.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
If it is not the body of Webster or Clay, my next guess would be Calhoun.
