No, it was taken by Alexander Gardner in his Washington, DC studio on February 9, 1864. The original for this print shows Lincoln seated in a chair in a formal pose. This photograph would provide the image of Lincoln used on the $5 bill.

Just an amazing picture. Was it taken by Mathew Brady?

About this image

About this Publication Title

Brady Civil War Photos

Mathew B Brady and many of the decade's best photographers created the photographs in this collection. There are detailed portraits of notable men of the era, as well as photos of soldiers, living and dead, battlefields, scarred landscapes, and cities burned and bombed by invading troops. They portray the horrors of war and images of life in camp. They represent photojournalism in its infancy and present us with real-life interpretations of our nation at war with itself.
