Final Photo of Lincoln Alive?

http://www.nbcwashington.com

A collector believes a photograph from a private album of Civil War Gen. Ulysses S. Grant shows President Abraham Lincoln in front of the White House and could be the last image taken of him before he was assassinated in 1865. If it is indeed Lincoln, it would be the only known photo of the 16th president in front of the executive mansion and a rare find, as only about 130 photos of him are known to exist. A copy of the image was provided to The Associated Press. Grant's 38-year-old great-great-grandson, Ulysses S. Grant VI, had seen the picture before but didn't examine it closely until late January. A tall figure in the distance caught his eye, although the man's facial features are obscured.

Ulysses Grant VI, the direct descendant of the more famous Civil War General and US President Ulysses S. Grant, believes that he has found the last photograph ever taken of Abraham Lincoln in his ancestor's private album.

The photograph was taken on March 6th, 1865, and is of the White House with several people standing in front of it. Keya Morgan, a New York-based photography collector and Lincoln aficionado, examined the photograph and found an inscription on the back reading "Lincoln inUlysses S.
