From The Gettysburg Battlefield To The Appomattox Courthouse


Abraham Lincoln. The president’s dedication address at Gettysburg. New York: Miller and Mathews, [1864]. Broadside

This small and rare broadside is the first separate printing of Lincoln’s famous address.  The broadside is undated, but copies were available in 1864 when the publishers sent several copies to President Lincoln in March of that year.  According to its publisher, the broadside was issued as a keepsake to be sold at the New York Metropolitan Sanitary Fair in April 1864.
