Happy President's Day

So this a picture of my great great grandpa, John Whitehead Seaman. From what I know the other man is an actor dressed as good old Abe Lincoln. John Seaman was a very patriotic man. He would ride his horse with an American flag at the beginning of parades. It is also said that he was able to talk to President Lincoln about the Emancipation Proclamation and stood at his grave when the President was buried. I thought that was kinda cool.
