Abstract

After a big boom in “Lincoln and” books—full disclosure: my own Lincoln and the Power of the Press is among them—it comes as a breath of fresh air to see preeminence in yet another such title granted to a “secondary” character: in this case, Civil War photographer Alexander Gardner. Few artists associated with the development of the Lincoln image deserve such acknowledgment more, and Richard Lowry has risen to the challenge admirably.
