Description: A photograph showing Abraham Lincoln (February 25, 1809-April 15, 1865), standing center at the Union Army headquarters tent on the battlefield of Antietam, Maryland; at left is Allan Pinkerton (August 25, 1819-July 1, 1884), a Scottish-born American detective and spy who created the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, the first detective agency of the United States; Pinkerton served as head of the Union Intelligence Service in 1861-1862, and foiled a reported assassination plot while guarding Lincoln in Baltimore, Maryland, on the president-elect's way to his inauguration in Washington, D.C.; on the right is Major General John A. McClernand (John Alexander McClernand; May 30, 1812-September 20, 1900), U.S. lawyer and politician and was one of Lincoln's political generals during the Civil War. The photograph was taken on Friday, October 3, 1862, by Alexander Gardner (October 17, 1821-December 10, 1882); the Battle of Antietam (AKA: The Battle of Sharpsburg), was fought September 17, 1862, near Sharpsburg, Maryland, and Antietam Creek, as part of the Maryland Campaign during the American Civil War (1861-1865); Antietam was the first major battle of the war to take place on Northern soil, and was the bloodiest one-day battle in American history, with about 23,000 casualties.
