A scarce image depicting several buildings grouped behind a center flagpole flying the Stars and Stripes. From left, identified in the title margin, are Dr. King's residence, President Lincoln's villa, the military governor's house, and the Soldier's Home. This was later called the Armed Forces Retirement Home. During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln and his family resided there during the summers and falls of 1862, 1863 and 1864, commuting daily to the White House. Since 2008 the Gothic revivial cottage has been run as an historic site by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Town Views - United States , Washington D.C.
