the revolution will be copy / pasted

doctored images of stalin and mussolini are well-known and often cited examples of early image manipulation and it is no surprise that the largest nations (russia & america) were some of the first to use this form of propaganda

however it now transpires that the best known (& therefore iconic) portrait of abraham lincoln (shown above) is also one of the very first images (perhaps even the first?) to have been modified to deliberately alter the context of its subject
