Estate Sale Broadside
Slaves & Land
Hours: Tues - Sat
A Slave Sale Broadside, from the year Lincoln was President-Elect.
Excellent; toned as usual and a bit of ghosting from when folded, which is barely discernable.
A great example of what the War was fought over!
(Photographed through the glass, much nicer in person!)
