The year is 1863. Here is Abraham Lincoln’s train on November 18th – at Pennsylvania’s Hanover Junction station. Abe was on his way to the Gettysburg battlefield to deliver his best-known speech. He had stopped in Hanover Junction to meet up with his friend, Pennsylvania Governor Andrew Curtin – whose train from Harrisburg was running behind schedule. Abe got off the train to stretch his legs while waiting for Curtin to arrive.

According to Gettysburg Daily.com, sometime after 4:00 PM, Abe decided he’d waited long enough. His train left Hanover Junction without Governor Curtin, and headed on to Gettysburg. Until today, this photo has only been seen in black & white. Now, after 150 years (almost to the day), the scene comes alive in full color. We think that’s a good thing for America. And Governor Curtin? He made it to Gettysburg, where on November 19, 1863 – he was with Lincoln on the platform as the president delivered his Gettysburg Address.
