Top photo: a 1950s street level view of the David WIlls house in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania when it still housed a business.  Wills hosted President Abraham Lincoln at the time of the writing of the Gettysburg Address, and was an instrumental figure in the creation of the Gettysburg National Cemetery.  The bottom 2010 photo shows the house restored to its historic appearance, a task accomplished in time for the 2009 bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth.
