Abraham Lincoln

This portrait photograph of President Abraham Lincoln was taken by Alexander Gardner. Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States and served from March 4, 1861 to April 15, 1865. Though Gardner is credited with taking this photograph on November 8, 1863, it was later printed and copyrighted in 1900 by M.P. Rice of Washington, D.C.
