Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, 1865
Poster Caption: Delivered when the defeat of the Confederacy was known to be imminent, this address reflects both President Lincoln’s forgiveness toward the South and his eloquent use of language. The blue ink is significant: copies published after Lincoln’s death (April 15, 1865) were printed in black, as a gesture of mourning. (Broadside, ca. March 4–early April 1865)
