$5,950.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 948-01

Wonderfully framed and matted autograph of President Abraham Lincoln. Above this is a lithograph image of Lincoln with his hands resting on a book titled, “Constitution of the United States” and torn Confederate literature lying at his feet. Below autograph is a plaque with a short bio of Lincoln.

Wartime signature reads, “Let these men take the oath of Dec. 8, 1865 & be discharged. A. Lincoln Feb. 16, 1865”. This was clipped from the back of a letter which would have requested the release of some reformed Confederates. The oath they would have taken is as follows, “I, ______, do solemnly swear, in presence of almighty God, that I will henceforth faithfully support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the union of the States thereunder; and that I will, in like manner, abide by and faithfully support all acts of Congress passed during the existing rebellion with reference to slaves, so long and so far as not repealed, modified or held void by Congress, or by decision of the Supreme Court; and that I will in like manner, abide by and faithfully support all proclamations of the President made during the existing rebellion having reference to slaves, so long and so far as not modified or declared void by decision of the Supreme Court. So help me God.”

Frame measures 16 ½” x 27 ¾”. Wire is present on reverse for hanging.

Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.  [SM]
