Civil Warrior of the Week #14: Abraham Lincoln

Lincoln entering Richmond

In April of 1865 you couldn’t see him in the movie theater, but you could see him on the streets of Richmond, victoriously entering the city. There are multiple accounts of Lincoln’s actions that day, and you can try to determine from the famous depiction here whether he was “joyous as a boy or plumb tuckered out“.

  1. I don’t know if he looks either “joyous as a boy or plumb tuckered out“. but the artist seems to have made him appear heavier and shorter than he actually was.
