Description

This engraving features the President Abraham Lincoln family. Mrs. Lincoln is seated to the viewer's left with their oldest son, Robert, standing to her left. President Lincoln is seated facing toward his wife holding an open book with their youngest son, Tad, standing to his right. A small table is beside Lincoln on his left. A portrait of their middle son, Willie, hangs on the wall behind the president. With the exception of Tad and his father, the Lincoln family never posed together for a photograph or artist. This is a composite print done from combining individual photographs of the family members. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
