$20


Unusual postcard, likely one of a kind. The Postcard is an embossed card commemorating 'The Martyred President' Lincoln. The back has a handwritten program for "Union Defenders Day", dated Feb 13, 1914 -- It's unclear exactly what the program is honoring. I found several references that this could be related to:

1) Union Defenders Day could be something organized by th Son's of Union Veterans, because there is a reference in the program, to 'Comrades of GAR'.

2)Lincoln's Birthday observed on the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth on February 12, 1809, in Kentucky, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, and New York.

3) Union Defenders Day is celebrated in Maryland to commemorate the successful defense of the city of Baltimore against the British during the war of 1812. Although this is typically celebrated in September.
