The Gettysburg gospel

One of the latest and most absorbing of the hundreds of collections of Civil War photographs is Historic Photos of Gettysburg, with text and captions by John S. Salmon. Although one photograph shows the crowd engulfing Lincoln, no close-up photograph was taken of him as he gave his famous address. Even so, his benevolent spirit pervades the 200-plus images in this book.
