Abraham Lincoln- Gettysburg Address

I'm a huge history fan/nutjob/crazyperson. Always have been. I'm constantly reading biographies, non-fiction books, Wikipedia, history websites and watching documentaries.  It's a little crazy to say the least.  My favorite person in history (by far) is Abraham Lincoln.  While looking at pictures from Matthew Brady & Alexander Gardner I started this piece back in February (Mr. Lincoln's birthday month)  I noticed how much he aged from 1857 to 1864.  I think we know why.  He had a stressful job.  Anyway, I combined these pictures and here's what I came up with.  I worked on it all year and finished it in time for the 153rd anniversary of The Gettysburg Address.
