Photos of Lincoln's Second Inaugural found

Photographs parading under mislabels have now been determined to be from President Abraham Lincoln's second inauguration.

By the way, have you ever read the speech he gave that day? Not just the most famous bit...
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
... which is the end of it, but the whole Second Inaugural Address?
