    A tender moment in the spectrum of time,....a father and his boy. RIP, Father Abraham (1809-2009). I'm mightily proud to have been born on your birthday (Feb 12, 1943...exactly 100 yrs after the birth of Robert Todd Lincoln (1843-1926).

    It's wonderful to have any photo of A.L with a family member. I was watching a History Channel show the other day which said (and I suppose I realized it after hearing it) that there are no known photos of Abe and Mary Todd together. Kind of sad.
