Wow... just wow. Flora Stewart was 117 years old when this photo was taken in New Hampshire in 1867. That means she was born in 1750. She saw this country founded and lived to see the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and the end of slavery. She saw George Washington and Abraham Lincoln as Presidents. And look at her: as regal as any Queen who ever reigned.
Visited here on my way to South Bend this June. I could have stayed for days. A. Lincoln is one of the most revered men in history worldwide. But he was much more complex than more people realize. I encourage anyone who is a student of history to study him more, especially some of the more recent scholarly writings.
