Shortly after Lincoln was nominated for the presidency, Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper sent an artist to draw several rooms in Lincoln’s home to help readers learn more about the Lincolns. The pictures were very useful when the National Park Service restored the house to determine what objects had been in the rooms when the Lincolns lived there.
