Lincoln visited here. Lincoln's 1858 Senatorial campaign visit to Pittsfield prompted a test firing of the cannon which was a popular campaign practice of the time. Charles Lame was seriously injured during the test firing. Lincoln walked down to the Lame house to check on Mr. Lame but was denied admission by his wife since Dr. J.H. Ledlie had ordered Lame to have no visitors. Lincoln had an ambrotype taken in Pittsfield and had a copy delivered to the Lames.
