The largest collection of original Lincoln photos as well as an impressive amount of related memorabilia - was collected and saved by 4-5 generations of one family! Started by a Major who was wounded at Gettysburg. There may have been a meeting with Lincoln (can't recall), but he's so changed by the war he abandons his family to become an itinerary fundamentalist Christian preacher. His son, becomes obsessed with the abandonment and because of the Gettysburg-Lincoln connection, starts a more-than-life-long quest to document Lincoln. He obtains photos no-one else has, including photos of nearly all officers in both armies his fathers war diaries, etc. His daughter - as dedicated to her father as her father was to his - takes over and outdoes her father. Her son - the great grandson - makes a documentary and the family transfers the collection to a safe place (Yale) recently. Good thing they never had a house fire!! A very interesting documentary, which will expose you to some items I'm sure you've never seen before
