That is not a picture of Abe Lincoln. Abe was 17 when the first photo was taken in France. Lincoln was 30 when the daguerreotype was invented. Also in France. Photography, in the US, was used for the first time during the civil war.

Joseph Draper of New York made one of the oldest photographic portraits known in 1839. Lincoln was then 31.
Abraham was still wearing buckskin pants and going barefoot at the time. You could find him reading a law book under a shade tree in Springfield.

Incredible simularities between President Lincoln and Obama. both were bi-racial. Both divided and bankrupted America with their radical socialist policies. Both were assasinated shortly after being re-elected and both have their images on money.

Abraham Lincoln was not biracial. Both his mother and his father's ancestors came from England.

Lincoln moved America away from an aristocratic society, based on inheritance and property. His policies helped create the richest nation on earth.

In 1836 Lincoln was admitted to the Bar in Springfield Illinois and by 1839 was already building his reputation as a lawyer. It is entirely possible this 31 year old lawyer with previous forays into local politics may have been the subject of one of the first daguerrotypes.
