Abraham Lincoln and His Emancipation Proclamation

A chromolithograph celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation includes the text of the document and a head-and-shoulders portrait of President Abraham Lincoln, who issued the proclamation freeing the enslaved population in 1863. Lincoln is surrounded by two American flags and a bald eagle clutching an American shield. The text of the proclamation is flanked by the symbolic figures of Justice and Liberty.
