Lincoln reached General Sumner's headquarters on Bolivar Heights, at Harper's Ferry, on Wednesday; he occupied the afternoon in reviewing the forces at that position, and spent the night at General Sumner's quarters. This historical image is printed by Alexander Gardner, Washington DC and is also in Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the Civil War, 1865. 9" x 6.75", mounted on card to 15.75" x 12".
