The Apotheosis of Abraham Lincoln into the Arms of George Washington, Accompanied by Angels and Light Breaking Through Clouds

I love this. It was drawn by an anonymous artist in the 1860s and is now housed as part of the collection at the George Eastman House:

  1. I really like the those two hugging each others, although my favorite of the two is Mr Abraham Lincoln. I am originally from El Salvador, but I love America. In my years of high school, I did a report on these two presidents and I came to to love both of them. However I was more affected strongly by Mr Abraham Lincoln legacy.
    I check most of your site, is very good.
