An amateur historian is credited with a historic discovery. John Richter found a previously unknown picture of Abraham Lincoln taken at Gettysburg. The image was where everyone could see it–on the Library of Congress website in their prints and photographs catalog. You can find other pictures of Gettysburg by using that as a search term in the catalog.

This past weekend newstations and websites were abuzz with the find. Is it real? Judge for yourself then add your comments to this blog. Take a look at the story that WGAL.com posted on their website over the weekend. Is it a picture of Abraham Lincoln on horseback on his way to give his Gettysburg address or just another fellow in a hat and beard. It’s time to sound off!

Remember that Lincoln was there and that news accounts mention his procession. Other pictures of that historic event place him in the crowd but you can make up your own mind. I’m still analyzing the evidence!

Happy Thanksgiving!
