Trains, stations and the Gettysburg Address

This is the scene from York County, Pa.’s, Hanover Junction believed to have been made by a photographer on the day that Abraham Lincoln traveled through York County to Gettysburg to deliver his Nov. 19, 1863, address. Yorkblogger Scott Mingus writes about this series of photos on his Cannonball blog, and here’s a bit more about a photo that some believe shows Abraham Lincoln at the station. Three York/Adams’ train stations, remembered here, hosted Lincoln on his way to and from his famous speech.
