President Lincoln discharges Confederate prisoners of war
Description                           Estimate: $5,000+          

Autograph endorsement as president, signed “A. Lincoln,” on a 3.75 x 2 clipped slip, January 31, 1865. In full: “Let these men take oath of Dec. 8, 1863, & be discharged.” Handsomely matted and framed with an engraved portrait of Lincoln; reverse of the frame bears an affixed Charles Hamilton Autographs certificate of authenticity and wax seal. In fine condition. On December 8, 1863, President Lincoln issued the Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction, by which he offered full pardons to any participant in the rebellion who laid down his arms and swore a loyalty oath, agreeing to 'faithfully support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the union of all the States there under.' Lincoln signed this directive to release these men—Confederate soldiers held as prisoners of war—at a time when peace negotiations to bring about the end of the war were beginning. A desirable and historically significant piece. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
