Description

The black and white engraving depicts President Abraham Lincoln walking through a crowd with his son, Tad, in Richmond, Virginia. The crowd is made up of white and black spectators who cheer as the President walks through the street. The engraving was enclosed in a brown wooden frame (which featured a sticker inscribed with the number 20) but was removed for preservation. The engraving has a vertical tear along its top and features light foxing in the upper two corners.
