“One of only two confirmed pictures of Abraham Lincoln at the Gettysburg Address, one of the most famous events in American history. Lincoln is in the center of the picture, hat off, and the tall man to his right wearing a top hat is his bodyguard,” quoting MSN. Photo credit: Library of Congress/Getty Images

Today marks National Freedom Day recognizing the joint House & Senate resolution President Abraham Lincoln signed 150 years ago today, February 1, 1865, outlawing slavery in the United States, later becoming the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
