Abstract:

This memorial card bears an image of Lincoln being ushered into heaven by two angels, one of whom has taken him by the hand. A third angel's hand places a laurel wreath on Lincoln's head, and Washington is above Lincoln with outstretched arms. A caption at bottom reads: Entered, according to act of Congress, in the year 1865, by J.A. Arthur, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Washington & Lincoln (Apotheosis.) S.J. Ferris, Del. Photo and Pub. by Phil. Pho. Co., 730 Chestnut St. This is one of many such images popularized in the period shortly following Lincoln's assassination; Lincoln was often depicted meeting Washington in death and undergoing glorification. The accession number for this item was formerly 80.0392 and was changed by mll on 6/27/05 because that number was already applied to another item.
