President Lincoln With General George B. McClellan and Officers

U.S. president Abraham Lincoln towers over Union general George B. McClellan, who was known as "Young Napoleon" in part because of his short stature, and his lieutenants on October 3, 1862, at the headquarters of Union general Fitz John Porter near Sharpsburg, Maryland.
