Thomas (Tad) Lincoln (1853-1871)
Tad Lincoln stands beside a table wearing a child-sized soldier suit given to him by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. The uniform came complete with sword and gloves. Behind Tad's feet can be seen the metal stabilizer, to hold the boy still during the long exposure time. This contact print was made from a damaged negative.
