While not technically "film footage", these images of President Lincolm are comprised of photo stills associated with an unknown photographer's early attempts at a film-like technology. What you see here is actually 5 or 6 different sets of photos that had been separated over the years. It was only recently that scholars discovered they form a whole sequence. They document Lincoln's "lone stroll" through the wilderness prior to giving the Gettysburg address.
