The Last Hours of Abraham Lincoln , Alonzo Chappel 

This painting records one of the most tragic events in American history: the death of President Abraham Lincoln. Do you see him lying on the bed, surrounded by dozens of people?  In reality, the room could not hold so many people, but the artist, Alonzo Chappel, included all those who visited the president over the course of the day he lay dying. Be sure to see the real oil on canvas during Lincoln’s Undying Words.
