C. 1863. Backmark: “From Wilson Brothers/ 258 Main Street/ Hartford/ Conn. “ Image sharp and clear. Overall condition, VG to Fine. Anna Dickerson [1842-1932] was a young, charismatic abolitionist reformer lecturer who spoke in support of numerous radical Republican candidates during the 1863 national fall campaign. A mesmerizing speaker, her efforts earned her [at age 22], an invitation to address both houses of Congress the following January, an event attended by President Lincoln and his cabinet. Followed by another interview with the President, about which there are conflicting accounts as to who said what to whom. Dickinson remained in demand as a reform lecturer for another decade or so, and became prominent among the early women suffragists. A blazing star in her youth, she died in obscurity in Goshen, NY, in 1932, on the eve of Franklin Roosevelt’s election as president. . Fine CDV for Civil War “political” aficionados.
