The problem with connecting Lincoln to the stereographic view reproduced in Holzer’s article is evident in the photograph itself. Holzer writes: ”. . . the scene appears bathed in early morning brightness. . . . The flag raising was completed, as Lincoln put it, ‘in the light glowing sun-shine of the morning.’ The newly found photograph fits that chronology.” But it doesn’t. The view of the statehouse was taken looking north toward the south front. The shadows in the photograph plainly show the angle of the sun: They are falling from left to right, or from southwest to northeast, indicating the time of day to be between mid- and late afternoon, depending on the fall or winter month of whatever year the picture was taken. It certainly was not taken at any time in the forenoon. Given Lincoln’s date with the Pennsylvania legislature on the afternoon of the twenty-second, it is inconceivable that he could have remained in Philadelphia beyond late morning. So even if this photograph was taken on February 22, 1861, as Holzer conjectures, at the late hour indicated by shadows, Lincoln was certainly busy in Harrisburg.
