    Abraham Lincoln: Awesome 1860 Campaign Parade Banner. It doesn't get much better than this! Like all parade banners of the period, it is hand-painted and sewn by partisan women who, though prevented from voting, still wished to make their contribution to the election of their candidate; in this case, Abraham Lincoln. It measures 46.5" x 40" and is made of cotton, with a central horizontal seam, and an applied red border. Though lacking portraits and other design elements, its content is fabulous. The text, in full, reads: "Providence Republican Club. For President. Abraham Lincoln. For Vice President Hannibal Hamlin. Free Thought! Free Speech Free Homes Free Men Presented by a number of the Ladies of Providence. 'We've scanned the actions of their daily lives with All the industrious malice of a foe and nothing meets Our Eyes but deeds of honor.' Our Whole Country Liberty & Union". There are some damp stains, primarily in the central section, light overall soiling and several small holes, barely affecting five letters of the inscription. It is a decent size, but not too large to be a challenge for display. This banner merits a place of honor in any collection.
