The purported find came after Ulysses S. Grant VI, the great-great-grandson of the former president and Civil War general, recently spotted a tall figure in the background of a photograph of the White House in a family album. Keya Morgan, the collector and Lincoln aficionado who has since bought the photograph, helped identify the man as Lincoln.
The AP says Grant also discovered a handwritten note on the back of the photo that reads, "Lincoln in front of the White House." It was apparently written by Gen. Grant's youngest son.
The figure in the photo is very tall and bearded, although his facial features are obscured. Lincoln was 6-foot-4.
