This broadside was printed in 1865, after the death of President Lincoln, and features five illustrations depicting Lincoln’s home, tomb, and "early life” in Illinois interspersed with a swirling variety of appealing font styles; a handsome portrait of the late President is positioned in the middle. Item #PR00203.

Jesse Dubois, the president of the Sangamo Insurance Company, served with Lincoln in the Illinois State Legislature.
