Slavery Liberty Emancipation Proclamation Cdv Cartes De Visite Art Slave 1863 For Salepiecewas donein the Cartes De VisiteCDV style andwascreated around 1863 ie. during the American civil war. It is not a true CDV as it is not a photograph but at the same time it is done in that style of a thin picture added to a cardboard back. It features Lady Liberty holding a scroll which I presume was the Emancipation Proclamation executive order signed by President Lincolnon January 1st, 1863.She is standing in front of the American Flag. There is ablack male and female at her feet and a cannon in the background. I presume they are freed slaves. The man is holding the Flag which has an eagle at it's top. It measures27/16" x3 13/16".It is marked G.G. Fish Pinxt which I believe is the Nantucket Portrait Painter George Gardner Fish (1822-1906) who moved to New York in the 1850's. It is also marked J. P. Soule, photo. Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1863 by John Sowle in the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
