NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, July 6, 1861
* President Abraham Lincoln
* His July 4th message to Congress
Pages 7 and 8 contain a 4-column transcript of: "The Message" from President Lincoln to Congress, signed in type: Abraham Lincoln. This is considered one of Lincoln's most famous speeches (although delivered to Congress in writing; not spoken) which has been given little attention, historically. In the address Lincoln outlined the events that ignited the war. He also cast considerable light on his own view of the fundamental purpose of government. Through his speech, all knew the time for action had arrived, and senators and representatives voted in unison to increase by 25% the President’s request for both money and soldiers to fight the war.
Complete in eight pages with some minor water staining. Page 8 has a print crease with some text loss, however, it does not inhibit the ability to read the speech. Generally nice condition. See images for details.
