Emancipation Proclamation September 22, 1862.
Renesch Chromolithograph broadside, 16" x 20".Creases where folded, slight abrasion at the conjunction of one of the folds, some slight chipping to the lower right corner, and the left margin, which extend a little into image; still a colorful and unusual piece. A scarce early 20th century broadside version of the Emancipation Proclamation in the form of a WWI "uplift" poster. At the center is Abraham Lincoln holding a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation. He is flanked with smaller images of Paul L. Dunbar, Frederick Douglas, Lt. Col. Franklin A. Dennison, and Lt. Col. Otis B. Duncan. Other images include soldiers, farmers, children at school, and a bald eagle perched on top of American Flags. We are reminded in the captions of some of the accomplishments of African American, and the promise of the future. A very attractive Broadside, even with a few imperfections.
