Lincoln Bedroom, Biden Administration

This photograph of the Lincoln Bedroom, located on the Second Floor of the White House, was taken by Bruce White on October 30, 2021 during the Joseph R. Biden administration. Previously used as an office and Cabinet Room, the room became a bedroom in the family quarters during the 1902 Roosevelt renovation. Furnished during the administration of President Harry S. Truman, the room features furniture, artwork, and refurbishing reminiscent of the 1860s. In 2005, the room underwent refurbishing under the direction of First Lady Laura Bush enhancing the historical accuracy of the Lincoln Bedroom. Featured objects in this view include a handwritten and signed copy of the Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln, and an engraving of Francis B. Carpenters 1864 painting, First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation.
