Here is a beautiful original autograph of President Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865). Lincoln is the most famous of all the personalities of the Civil War. He was born in Kentucky but moved to Illinois, later known as the "Land of Lincoln" He served as the 16th President of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. This is a vividly clear clipped signature on a piece of paper that measures 2 inches by 3-1/2 inches. The President boldly signed "A. Lincoln." in dark ink. One thing that is neat about this piece is that the President was using an older piece of paper and that was something that he was known for. On the edge it shows the "OFFICIAL" from the official business pre-printed paper. The note states "Recom. of Gen. Thomas approved. / A. Lincoln / Feb. 10, 1864." Currently we don't know which General Thomas is being referenced. There were four in the Regular Army and four in the state (volunteer) troops.With research you might be able to track down which one he is referencing but we will leave that for you. There is a note that accompanied the autograph that reads "My brother was one of Lincoln's private under secretaries and he informed me that Mr. Lincoln often used scraps of paper culled out of his waste basket on official business matters. Signed L.A. Matile, Brig. General, US Army." This is an exception piece that is ready to frame and hang on your relic room wall.
