Mounted copyprint silverprint photo, 7-1/4” x 4-1/2” to larger brown mount. Lincoln would occasionally make surprise visits to army encampments, conferring with generals and reviewing troops. After many military setbacks, the Union army finally achieved a victory, although a costly and inconclusive one, at Antietam Creek, near Sharpsburg, Maryland. This group shot was taken by Alexander Gardner and published in his 1866 portfolio Photographic Sketchbook of the Civil War. Lincoln was only photographed outdoors on six occasions and this view is one of only two showing him standing and wearing his trademark stovepipe hat. Excellent. In its 1866 version, recent auction records show over $4000.
