My favorite photos are those taken at Massaponax Church, Virginia in May, 1864.  It's fascinating to be able to view so many of the Union commanders together. 

 Another favorite of mine has always been the Photo of Lincoln's first inauguration under the scaffolding of the unfinished Capitol dome.  To me, that picture symbolizes the task which Lincoln was faced with when he became President.  The Capitol was unfinished when he arrived in Washington, and even through those terrible years of conflict, work continued on the Capitol.  By the end of the conflict, the nation was reunited and Lincoln belonged "to the ages"... The Capitol remained, as it has through many dark days and proud moments of our history .
