I only heard about this issue yesterday, and am starting to research it. There are some things I don't understand.
Like, why if I go a branch up in the directory of the picture link (www.departments.bucknell.edu...
), I see no way to
get to gettysburg.jpg. The only active picture links take me to things like lincolnportrait.html. All such links lead to pages ending in html, not
Second, Lincoln is supposedly in the picture (?) The guy with his back to the camera is supposed to be him? The guy who appears in height to be
somewhere between the height of the three blurry gentlemen, and the kid? Lincoln was supposed to be tall, wasn't he? If this is supposedly Lincoln,
why isn't the kid fascinatedly looking at him instead of standing with his back to him?
The people in the foreground are blurry. The people in the background are clear. Either the photographer did not know what he was doing, or it's an
obvious fake. Photography of this time required long exposures. If the foreground is blurry due to movement, why aren't the people in the
background blurrier? Especially those holding rifles or musical instruments. If it's an aperature issue, why is the kid blurrier than the three
closer to the camera? A distinguishable face would add some credibility to this.
The shoes look more like Mickey Mouse's than tennis shoes.
I don't understand what's supposed to look modern about him. Part of the problem is that he's so blurry.
The claim is that he lost his shoes and jacket going through the porthole? Inanimate clothing has a problem, but a complex organic structure like the
human body can travel through a time porthole with every molecule intact? The contradiction doesn't quite fit.
If this is a military moment, why don't I see a bunch of military uniforms? Civilian clothing seems to pervade.
