Ford's Theatre Broadside "Our American Cousin" Repro
April 14th, 1865-Dated, Later 20th Century Reproduction of the famous Ford's Theatre Printed Broadside, "OUR AMERICAN COUSIN," Extremely Fine.
This is a rather obvious, later reproduction of the historic Broadside, which was originally produced just a few days after the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, on the evening of April 15, 1865 at Ford's Theater. This copy of that souvenir measures about 19" tall x 6" wide and is somewhat poorly printed in black on a thin tan wove paper. We do not know the date of this reproduction and it could be anywhere from the 1940s to 1960s. Still, this example would be good for a display as it is very graphic.
