RARE PHOTO OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN FOUND

An ultra rare photo of Abraham Lincoln (center) taken during the time of his
address at Gettysburg was discovered by a former Disney animator. 

FoxNews – Historians rejoiced at the discovery of the second photo ever found of Abraham Lincoln at the Gettysburg address six years ago. The blurry photo was
found by amateur historian John Richter who picked out the president while on 
horseback saluting the troops from among a sea of faces (below). 

Tuesday morning, with the help of improved technology, former Disney animator Christopher Oakley announced he had found Lincoln in the same crowd — only his Lincoln is a few yards to the right in front of the speaker’s stand. Richter’s Lincoln
is just a top-hat-wearing doppelganger, Oakley says.

Now, historians who once supported Richter’s photo are switching sides and saying Oakley’s photo is the real deal.
