Littlefield, John Harrison (1835-1902).

Littlefield entered the Lincoln-Herndon law office in 1858 as a student and campaigned for his mentor in 1860. In 1862 he was appointed to a clerkship in the Treasury Department in Washington, D.C. After the war his painting of AL's deathbed scene and his later Lincoln portrait were widely circulated.
