Is It Honestly Abe?

I'm a little fascinated by this daguerreotype, which might be the earliest known surviving image of Lincoln. You think it's him? Go here for the full story and to compare to the Lincoln we all know and love. I for one didn't know (or forgot) that a horse kicked Abe in the head as a youngster. Who knows, we just might have that horse to thank for some of Abe's novel ideas.

If only all our politicians were kicked in the head by a horse...
