It's not every day that the national news features an animator discovering something of profound historic significance for America but that's the case today. in his research at the University of North Carolina-Asheville instructor Christopher Oakley found an image in a rare photo taken at Gettysburg just before Abraham Lincoln gave his famous speech. It appears that one of the figures in that photo is none other than Abraham Lincoln himself. Ironically it was 150 years ago this summer that the famous battle took place.
Christopher is a former animator at DreamWorks and Disney. Here's his personal website.
Here's a look at the photo. Lincoln is highlighted in the center.
