|Commentary:|| The shawl that Lincoln is wearing in this painting was given by Lincoln to the artist’s father, Col. John Schoonover, in 1862, while he was serving with the 11th New Jersey Volunteers, Army of the Potomac, in Alexandria, Virginia. It was presented by Cortlandt Schoonover, son of the artist, to the Lincoln Club of Wilmington, Delaware in 1969. Lincoln is shown carrying the shawl in #326. (archives)
