1865 Photographic Collage of the "Emancipation Leaders"
1865-Dated, "EMANCIPATION LEADERS," Photographic Collage, Printed by Powell & Co., New York, Extremely Fine.
An original example of this large size, 8" x 7" Collage-Type Photograpic Albumen Print upon a larger size 13.5" x 10.5" mount. It depicts the various Senators and Representatives of the 38th Congress who voted to pass the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery. Some slight foxing to the mount only not affecting the sharp image. President Lincoln is at the bottom, Vice President Hannibal Hamlin at the top and Speaker of the House of Representatives Schuyler Colfax at center. Along the lower edge of the image, "Entered According to Act of Congress in the year 1865 by Powell & Co... New York."
