Above is a picture Abe at a photo opportunity visiting a Union Civil War camp.
Through modern technology and teaching the computer how to read body language and facial expression it is now possible to read thoughts of those in photographs. Here is what the digital mind has determined Abe was thinking in this photo:
"How long is Matthew Brady going to take on this picture? And why do they have their right hands across their chest and underneath their clothing? My arms are so long I could could do the same pose with my right hand in my fly...yuk yuk!"
