    Description

    Abraham Lincoln Endorsement Signed "A. Lincoln/ March 16, 1865." One page, lined paper, 6.75" x 3", [Washington]. Thirty days before his death, President Lincoln endorses below the handwritten statement, "Let the within named prisoners be discharged on taking the oath of 8th December 1863." On December 8, 1863, the president issued the Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction guaranteeing that rebels who took an oath to support the U.S. Constitution would be pardoned. A few of the letters have smudged, including the "n" in "Lincoln". The page has mat-burn and is hinged and matted with a print of Lincoln entertaining three gentlemen (dated 1931) to an overall size of 20" x 19". With six signatures on the verso.
