Weight (Lbs): 15
Height (In.): 14.5
Width (In.): 32.5
Depth (In.): 1
Size: 3.75 x 22.5"
Maker: Unknown
Material: Cotton
Date: 1864
Provenance:
Condition: Some darkening of the fabric, light fraying of the edges.
History: Lincoln had good reason to doubt his chances for reelection. No president since Andrew Jackson in 1832 had won a second term. The Democratic Party nominated Gen. George McClellan, whom Lincoln had removed from command. McClellan ran on an anti-Lincoln and anti-Emancipation Proclamation platform and left open the possibility of a negotiated peace with the South. As the election approached, Union triumphs on the battlefield helped propel Lincoln to victory. He declared the election results a mandate to press on for an unconditional victory and a constitutional amendment to end slavery.
