Rogan's Recollections

One of Abraham Lincoln's Last Autographs--150 Years Ago Today

This autograph in my political memorabilia collection is worth a look, especially today. Of all the memorabilia in my collection, one of my favorites is this clipped document signed by President Abraham Lincoln three days before his assassination on April 11, 1865. Today is the 150th anniversary of Lincoln signing this precious clip, which granted yet another pardon for a young Confederate soldier.


I took this photograph under fading daylight this evening, so sorry for the less-than-professional shots.


By the way, this autograph has more authentication "pedigrees" from world-renowned auction houses, experts, and national archivists than you possess for your AKC dog!
