  • What Do You Value?

    1. 1. Looking older than his 55 years, Lincoln seemed more like a regular person than a president in his dark suit, white shirt, and crooked bowtie. Alexander Gardner, known for his candid photographs, did nothing to flatter the president’s haggard features. Instead, he let Lincoln’s expression reveal his weary and worried countenance during the last long weeks of the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln, Pres., U.S., 1809-1865 Artist: Alexander Gardner Date: 1865 Alexander Gardner (1821–1882), Abraham Lincoln, Pres., U.S., 1809-1865. April 10, 1865. Photographic print. Prints and Photographs Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
