    Rare John C. Frémont Autographed Cabinet Photo. Although Frémont's long life of public service makes his signature relatively available, a photo signed on the front is quite scarce. Frémont is best known, of course, as the renowned "Pathfinder of the West." But he was also the first Republican presidential standard-bearer in 1856, a Civil War general, and a not-insignificant splinter candidate for the presidency again in 1864 against Lincoln and McClellan. This 1890-dated photo by Doremus of Paterson, New Jersey, depicts Fremont near the end of his life; however, his facial features beneath the now-white beard are immediately recognizable. Signed, "I am truly yours John C. Fremont," in crisp black ink. Excellent condition with just minor light aging. 1892 newspaper obituary was glued to the reverse. 4" x 6.5".
