Lincoln Playing the Banjo

This cartoon shows Lincoln playing the banjo. Lincoln's friend Ward Hill Lamon sang a few of Lincoln's favorite songs to him as they traveled to the troops at Antietam, and the incident was blown out of proportion to suggest Lincoln's indifference to the casualties of the Battle of Antietam.
