Incredible Discovery! Mr. Lincoln is an American Heroe. I wish we had a young Abe Lincoln these troubled days to run for President.

I find this picture unbelievable. There is no resemblance to the other pictures. Look at his mouth and ears! The ears stick out further and the mouth has bigger lips.

Had I seen this picture of A. Lincoln as a young man, I would never have recognized him. This must have been made around 1830?
