Not only is The Annotated and Illustrated Journals of Major Robert Rogers annotated by Timothy J. Todish a fantastic read for primary documentation of the French and Indian War, it is worth buying just for the amazing illustrations by Gary Zaboly!

This is the bloodstained chair that President Abraham Lincoln was sitting in when he was assassinated back in 1865.

Belmont County Victorian Mansion Museum shared The White House Historical Association's post.
Seventeen-year-old Lavinia “Vinnie” Ream arrived at the steps of the White House in late 1864 to make a portrait bust of President Abraham Lincoln. President Lincoln agreed to let the young artist sculpt a clay model of his likeness while he worked in his office. Ream sensed the president’s gloom and sadness during the five months she spent working on the model. “I have never known of anyone in such deep grief as Mr. Lincoln showed during all the months I worked with him,” she later recalled. The Civil War raged on as Lincoln sat for the young artist, and although the Union armies were winning important victories, the horrific bloodshed weighed heavily on the president. Ream was devastated when John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln in Ford’s Theatre in April 1865, but the young sculptor remained thankful for the opportunity the president gave her. “He had been painted and modeled before, but when he learned that I was poor, he granted me the sittings,” she wrote. “Had I been the greatest sculptor in the world, I am sure that he would have refused at that time.” The country began to mourn and memorialize Lincoln, and in 1866 Congress commissioned Ream to create a full-length statue of the president she had previously sculpted with great care. Although her age and gender caused some controversy, Ream prevailed in creating a magnificent statue of Lincoln that still stands in the U.S. Capitol today. Ream sculpted a full-length model in Washington and then transported it to Italy. Once in Rome, she followed tradition and hired a group of skilled artisans to carve her design in Italian marble. She then shipped the statue back to the United States, where it was officially unveiled in the Capitol Rotunda January 1871. Senator James W. Patterson commended Ream’s work during the ceremony. “Our artist was aware that no flattery was expected at her hands,” he said. She succeeded in sculpting Lincoln “as he appeared in the White House, and there he appeared just as he did on the prairies and in the courtrooms of the West.” Ream went on to sculpt two additional statues for the Capitol, one depicting Iowa governor Samuel Kirkwood and another of the Cherokee leader Sequoyah.
