Details about Abraham Lincoln Stephen Douglas Jugate Badge With Ribbon - RARE 1908 Vintage
One of the few photographs of Lincoln inside the White House was taken in this room by Matthew Brady in 1864. It was not until after the renovation of the White House undertaken during the Truman administration that this room became so exclusively associated with Lincoln.
Gem size badge with Ferrotype portrait of Lincoln known as the "Speed" portrait. Lincoln received a Bible from Joshua Speed's mother and the President later reciprocated the gift with an inscribed photo to her. Portrait was taken in 1861, however, this badge is most likely made to use for 1864 Presidential Campaign. (Speed was one of Lincoln's closest early day friends in his Springfield years and they were partners in a General Store). *s*
