Robert Todd Lincoln

This is a nice photograph of Robert Todd Lincoln, the only child of Abraham Lincoln to live to adulthood. The photograph was taken in 1922 at the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.
Robert was at Abraham Lincoln's bedside at his death. Robert Lincoln was also at the Sixth Street Train Station in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881, and witnessed the assassination of President James Garfield. At the time Lincoln was serving as Garfield's Secretary of War.
Then on September 6, 1901, Robert Lincoln was at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York where President McKinley was assassinated.
