Commemorative patriotic lithograph copyright 1865 by Henry & Wm. Vought, New York. Issued at the time of Lincoln's death, this print places him in equal standing with George Washington, the "father of our country." Along the sides are representative events from the life of each: For Washington, the Boston Tea Party, signing the Declaration of Independence and the surrender at Yorktown; for Lincoln, firing on Fort Sumter, the "Monitor," and his entry into Richmond. At the center is Columbia, holding laurel wreaths above both men. Below the portraits are the Declaration of Independence and the Emancipation Proclamation. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Portraits , Presidents
