Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an original signature and image of the man that served as Abraham Lincoln's first Vice-President, Hannibal Hamlin. Hamlin was born in Paris, Maine in August 27, 1809. Before the Civil War he served in Congress from his home state of Maine. He served as Abraham Lincoln's running mate on the 1860 ticket as a Republican and he was the first Republican Vice-President. For the 1864 election, Hamlin was replaced as Vice Presidential nominee by Andrew Johnson, a Southern Democrat chosen for his appeal to Southern Unionists. It is a bold brown ink signature of Hamlin with the notation of Vice-President. After the War, he served as a collector for the Port of Boston, Massachusetts. In 1869, Hamlin was elected again to the U.S. Senate, and he served two terms. After leaving the Senate in 1881, he served briefly as United States Ambassador to Spain before returning to Maine in late 1882. In retirement, Hamlin was a resident of Bangor, Maine, where he died in 1891. He is buried in Bangor, Maine in Mount Hope Cemetery. The autograph is beautifully framed and matted in a wooden frame that measures 11 inches by 12 inches in overall size. It also has a printed biography of his service as well as an original CDV image of Hamlin in a fine suit of clothes. The paper that the autograph is on measures 2-1/4 inches by 1-1/2 inches in the matting. It is ready to hang on the wall of your relic room.
