"We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity.” ― Malcolm X - El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz a.k.a Malcolm X [May 9, 1925 – February 21,1965]
Tad seemed to enjoy the idea of throwing the White House and its staff into a dither. Because of the times, some of Tad's games were war-related. He received a pretend military commission from Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. (The National Archives photo shows Tad in the Union uniform that Stanton allowed him to wear.)
"Here I am, back in Mecca. I am still traveling, trying to broaden my mind, for I've seen too much of the damage narrow-mindedness can make of things, and when I return home to America, I will devote what energies I have to repairing the damage. In my recent travels into African countries and others, I was impressed by the importance of having a working unity among all peoples, black as well as white." ~Malcolm X
This is a print of a wood engraved portrait of Abraham Lincoln by engraver Gustav Kruell (1843 – 1907). The print is signed and copyrighted 1891. The portrait is based on a photograph of Lincoln taken by Samuel M. Fassett in 1859 in Chicago. Mrs. Lincoln considered it the best likeness of her husband that she had ever seen. It presents Lincoln as he appeared just before his nomination for the Presidency. The original negative was destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 (Miller, p. 29).
