Portrait of Lincoln

For decades following the Civil War, the portrait of Lincoln shown on the top of our page graced the walls of public buildings and classrooms. But Lincoln never posed for this portrait. Instead a photograph of Lincoln's head had been superimposed onto a portrait of the Southern leader John Calhoun, below. This was done because there were hardly any appropriate 'heroic-style' portraits of Lincoln made during his life.
