Historic Gettysburg Photo May Contain Lincoln's ImageBreaking News
"I think it's absolutely staggering to see something like this that was in a sense hidden in plain sight," said Lincoln author Harold Holzer.
Holzer thinks the image of a person in one of only two known photographs taken at Gettysburg on the day of Lincoln's address looks like Lincoln possibly arriving to the stage on horseback.
"To have the moment recorded minutes before he's about to give his greatest rhetorical triumph is very significant," said Holzer.
Last year, a Hanover man found the photo. It was on the Library of Congress' Web site all these years. The Center for Civil War Photography enhanced it.
