Catalogue Note

This uncommon and attractive version of the Thirteenth Amendment was copyrighted by Judson Holcomb, a Republican judge in Towanda, Pennsylvania, the seat of Bradford County. Issued to support ratification of the amendment, the lithograph features a title incorporating stock vignettes of the American eagle, Justice, and Liberty; an elaborately calligraphic text; facsimile signatures of all of the senators and congressmen who supported the resolution, as well as those of the President, Vice President, Speaker of the House, Secretary of the Senate; and a border incorporating two roundel vignettes of slave life and two admonitory text tablets: "The Scripture Fulfilled. Woe has Come upon Those by Whom the Offense of Slavery Came" and "Slavery's Chains are Broken. The Bondsman is Free."
