Abraham Lincoln, photographed February 9, 1864, by Anthony Berger for Brady & Co.

Remember Abraham Lincoln through his unforgettable words and revealing images on the 203rd anniversary of his birth.  Lincoln was frequently photographed at precisely the time of his most important speeches, and this performance combines his words and pictures, orchestrating both to evoke the real Lincoln—from his days as prairie politician to the presidency to immortality.
