Subject: Ann Rutledge and Abe Lincoln in Athens, borrowing books at Colonel Rogers home in 1833.

From James Hickey's research, "The Three R's in Lincoln's Life" ~ Rogers, Riggins and Rankin.

Description: This is one of the few pictures with Lincoln and Ann Rutledge together as drawn by Ostendorf. He used a picture from the Rutledge family to get his detail of Ann in this ink and wash. (The picture was of a female relative.) The ink and wash shows Ann seated in front of the Rogers home, a short distance northeast of Athens, and Abe with his boot on a stump. They are both holding a book.
