Description

This print features a bearded Abraham Lincoln hoisting a large American flag up at Independence Hall. Lincoln wears a dark jacket and vest, as well as a white shirt and black bow tie. People stand in the crowd on either side of Lincoln, and the flag descends down to cover the bottom edge of the print. Independence Hall stands in the distance, with a tree to the left of the Hall. The entire image is slightly shadowed in an early-evening haze.
