The Weight of a Year

Last week, a friend of mine posted two photos taken of Lincoln in the space of a year over on Emerging Civil War. The change between that one year is fascinating! Check it out!

Emerging Civil War

Working on the layout for Bert Dunkerly’s upcoming To the Bitter End, I was searching for a photo of President Lincoln from 1865. As I sorted through the Library of Congress’s stash, I came across a pair of photos taken almost a year apart–the first on February 9, 1864, and the second taken 150 years ago today on February 5, 1865.
