Young Abe Lincoln makes his second trip to New Orleans by flatboat and stays a month, May into June, 1831.

Description: It shows Lincoln landing at Jackson Square in New Orleans. In the background is the old cathedral as Lincoln would have seen it, as researched by Dr. Wayne Temple. The old church that Lincoln saw had been burned down. The ink and wash was commissioned by Phil Wagner for his son Phil J. Wagner to use at a convention in New Orleans. Phil J. worked for Lincoln National Insurance Company, and was attending a convention in New Orleans. School teachers were the main prospects at this convention. Phil gave Lincoln National permission to make prints and use them as handouts in their booth. Phil furnished a framed positive, which was given to the then Lt. Governor (1978) of Louisiana.
