Abraham Lincoln in 1858

Here is Abraham Lincoln as he looked just two years before his election to the presidency. Though he had a reputation as a backwoods storyteller, he was a man of intense political ambition, as this ambrotype portrait clearly reveals. It was taken on August 26, 1858 at Macomb, Illinois by T. P. Pearson.
