Images of President Lincoln in the U.S. Capitol

Here’s Harold Holzer speaking to the U.S. Capitol Historical Society on the images of Abraham Lincoln, and the stories surrounding them, in the U.S. Capitol.

The video’s description reads, “Harold Holzer talked about the creation of and meaning behind the many paintings, sculptures, and photographs of President Lincoln now on public display in the U.S. Capitol building. In this illustrated talk, Mr. Holzer featured the story of a large painting depicting Lincoln and his cabinet in 1862 reading the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.”
