Description

This commemorative print features a bearded Abraham Lincoln standing on a porch next to a large pillar with his right hand resting on a chair while holding a rolled document in his left hand. The dome of the Capitol can be seen in the background along with trees. Lincoln is shown wearing a black suit coat, vest, and bow tie. His black overcoat and stovepipe hat are on the chair. A facsimile signature is printed just below the image along with a very small etching of the Lincoln Home in Springfield, Illinois.
