Great story---On Sunday, August 9, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln, along with his secretary John Hay, visited photographer Alexander Gardner’s new Washington, D.C. studio at 7th and D Street. It was there that Lincoln, who according to Hay was in good spirits, sat for Gardner for the fourth time, producing a number of new likenesses. Nine days after his sitting, Mr. Gardner received a letter signed by the president. (Follow link to read letter.)

“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within...History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”--Douglas MacArthur
