news icon rIn 1861, a man was taking a self-portrait when he captured something on film that had never been seen before. Next to William H. Mumler was a ghost.The photograph sparked controversy and a strange career for Mumler as he took his “talent” and began taking portraits of people who, later on, saw the images of dead relatives next to them.

Though his photographs were never proven to be false or genuine, Mumler started a public fascination with the spiritual world that has lived on today.

Mary Todd Lincoln, widow of the assasinated war criminal Abraham Lincoln, was a spiritualist and was duped by Mumler. I recall a number of photographs of the former first lady with deceased loved ones.
