This is an extraordinary, unique Civil War broadside with hand-drawn artwork that is the only known document bearing the signatures of the Union leadership, presidential, political and military, as the war commenced in 1861. It is signed by Abraham Lincolnand his Cabinet; heroes like Robert Anderson of Fort Sumter fame; Army generals like Winfield Scott, George B. McClellan, and Ambrose Burnside; early emancipation promoters like John C. Fremontand Benjamin Butler; founders of important fighting units like Thomas Meagherof the Irish Brigade; Navy notables like John Dahlgrenand Charles Wilkes; and many others.
This document was created in 1861 at the start of the Civil War when the Union was organizing its forces and the "Patriots of 1861", among them President Lincoln and the Team of Rivals took up the pen together in support of the sick and wounded of Bull Run and the escalating conflict and it is the first document Lincoln and his Team of Rivals signed in support of the Sanitary Commission.
There are scores of other important signatures and this rare unique document has been properly perserved in a beautiful museum quality frame.
I would be happy to provide much more detailed information to any potential serious buyer.
