A week before Gettysburg, Lincoln greets two volunteer nurses for the Fredericksburg wounded
Description  

Bold ink signature, “For Miss J. B. Moore, A. Lincoln, June 22, 1863,” on an off-white 3.25 x 2 slip. Affixed at one edge to a slightly larger card. In fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned engraved portrait of Lincoln. A note of the same date appears in Lincoln’s Collected Works, in which he writes that Mrs. Moore and her daughter Miss Jane B. Moore, both ‘noted for their philanthropic labor among our sick and wounded soldiers,’ had visited. Jane B. Moore also wrote a brief piece about her experiences tending to the wounded at Fredericksburg, which was published in a report by the United States Christian Commission. This autograph dates to just eight days before the Battle of Gettysburg began, the most devastating battle in American history—a choice presidential example with important Civil War associations. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
