Lincoln Visiting Civil War Staff

The tall President Lincoln visiting his senior officers in the field toward the end of the Civil War.  Note the Ghost on the far right side of the photo.  The legs are clearly visible, while the torso and head fade as you follow the body up. 

The effect was probably created by someone moving from their original position during the typical long-exposure required for photos in that era.
