Abraham Lincoln - Autograph Fragment Signed 09/22/1864 For Sale

Abraham Lincoln - Autograph Fragment Signed 09/22/1864

ABRAHAM LINCOLN
This fragment of an autograph document was signed and war-dated by President Abraham Lincoln on Sept. 22, 1864 - two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was announced and on the same date as the Union victory at the Battle of Fisher's Hill. Framed Gallery of History-style to 21x17¼ in a gold-colored frame with red matte, with a b/w photo of Lincoln and metal nameplate. Autograph fragment signed "favor this way of doing it./A. Lincoln/Sept. 22,1864". 1 page, 2½x1½ (visible). Framed to 21x17¼ in a gold-colored frame with red matte, with a b/w 5¼x6¼ (visible) photo of Lincoln and 5x2¾ metal nameplate. This fragment is dated during the second and final day of the Battle of Fisher's Hill (Sept. 21 and 22, 1864), in which the Union's General Phillip H. Sheridan pushed the outnumbered General Jubal A. Early out of Virginia's Shenandoah County and into Waynesboro, Virginia, and about three weeks after the Union capture of Atlanta on Sept. 2, 1864. It's also dated exactly two years of the announcement of the Emancipation Proclamation on Sept. 22, 1862; it became law on Jan. 1, 1863. Future American president Lincoln (1809-1865, born near Hodgenville, Kentucky), on the advice of Whig legislator (and future law partner) John Todd Stuart, became a lawyer in 1836. In 1837, Lincoln moved to Springfield, where he became a partner in Stuart's law firm. From 1834 until he left for Washington, D.C. as President-elect, Lincoln's law offices were located above Seth Tinsley's store in Springfield. Lincoln, who became one of the most respected and successful lawyers in Illinois, handled some 5,100 cases and appeared before the Illinois State Supreme Court over 400 times over his 23-year legal career, which also included a long association (1844-1865) with another partner, William Henry Herndon. Before being elected President, Lincoln also served in the Illinois State Legislature (1834-1841) and one term (1847-1849) as a U.S. Congressman. He's best known, of course, as the 16th president of the United States (1861-1865), and especially as the Union's president during the Civil War (1861-1865) and writer of the Emancipation Proclamation. He was actively involved in military planning, swapping generals to find an aggressive commander of the Union army. Though his involvement cost the Union an early loss at the First Battle of Bull Run, his policies of blockading and overwhelming the Confederate army with superior numbers would eventually win the day. His primary objective was to reunite the United States, not end slavery. However, he signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 in response to rising abolition feelings in the Union. He was shot while sitting in Ford's Theatre in Washington, DC by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1965, only a few months after being sworn in for his second term as president and only two days after the Confederate Army's official surrender, and died the next day. He was succeeded by Vice-president Andrew Johnson. Lightly toned and creased. Show-through touches signature and body of fragment. Fragment is covered in Mylar. Frame is lightly chipped. Glass is lightly soiled. Otherwise in fine condition. Framed in Gallery of History style.
