From The Gettysburg Battlefield To The Appomattox Courthouse


Abraham Lincoln. Andrew Johnson. President and Vice-President. Hartford, Connecticut, and New York: F. B. Whiting, [1864?]. Broadside.

This hand-colored lithograph broadside was produced by the popular lithography firm of Edmund Burke Kellogg (1809-1872) and Elijah Chapman Kellogg (1811-1881), located in Hartford, Connecticut.  From the 1830s through the rest of the century, the Kellogg firm was second only to Currier and Ives in producing affordable and decorative prints for the American public. It is not clear if this broadside was published before or after the election of Lincoln and Johnson.  Nevertheless, the message is that the election of the two would lead to a national revival of agriculture and commerce in the post-war years.
