Description

The object is a folder constructed out of blue construction paper. Its outside front cover bears Abraham Lincoln's name, while the back features a bust image of Lincoln. On the inside at the left, a paper pocket holds a newspaper clipping from the 22 November 1861 edition of the New York Tribune entitled "The Latest War News." Beneath the pocket, a sliver of wood is attached with a label that reads "Piece of White House." At the right of the folder's inside is a small black and white portrait of Lincoln that is affixed to a decorative yellow sheet of construction paper that also features a facsimile copy of Lincoln's signature. To its right, a wood sliver is attached that is labeled "Fence Rail - Indiana Home."
