Abe Lincoln

Abe Lincoln, a photo by tabrandt on Flickr.
Another shot from yesterdays visit to the Wade House - Civil War Weekend at the Wade House in Greenbush Wisconsin.

The man that portrayed Abe Lincoln (Fritz Klein) has been blessed with a wonderful gift of being able to captivate young people through the telling of history. All the kids sat so quietly and hung on every word he said, even most of us parents could have for as long as 4 score and 7 years... (sorry).

I tried to process the photo to represent cyanotype processing which would have been available during this time period.
