    Abraham Lincoln: Impressive Paper Portrait Ribbon with Homestead Theme Illustration. 3.5" x 8.25" paper ribbon with large woodcut of the candidate along with an illustration showing a rail splitter (possibly meant to be Lincoln) below the slogan "A Home for the Homeless." The adaption of a Homestead Law was one of the Republican planks in 1860. It offered the prospect of free land in the territories to white settlers who would not face competition from slave labor. The law was enacted in 1862. A few fold lines with two pin holes at top and minor foxing. Handsomely double-matted and framed to an overall size of 9.5" x 15". Great graphics and content!
