Abraham Lincoln military commission signed as President during the Civil War, appointing a Paymaster to the Union Army on 24 May 1864. At this point in the war, Union forces were finally on the other side of the Rapidan River, with Atlanta in their sights, although the war wouldn't be over for another year with thousands more casualties in the meantime. Lincoln elegantly signs with his full signature ''Abraham Lincoln'' at lower right, countersigned by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. Vellum document measures 14.75'' x 18.5''. Unusually well preserved, with intact blue paper seal and very little toning or creasing. Smoothed quarter folds and some fading to ink, although Lincoln's signature remains strong. In very good plus condition.
