Description

A stately memorial print to the assassinated President, issued shortly after his death on April 15th, 1865. Lincoln is shown 3/4rs, standing in front of a American shield draped in mourning. The print is signed, but the signature (F. Facks?) is hard to read. A handsome example of the type of print which would have hung in many homes of grieving Americans.
