Summary

A smaller version of no. 1865-7, issued later the same year and printed from one rather than two lithographic stones. In this version the figure of Lincoln is more convincingly drawn, but the continent is cropped and misshapen. A scroll with the words "Our Country" crosses the shield held by Washington, holding the Consitution, and Lincoln, holding the Emancipation proclamation. The words "Under Providence Washington made and Lincoln saved" appear above the figures.
