Signature: "J.A. Andrew", 2¾x¾, affixed to 3½x2 sheet. John Andrew (1818-1867), an anti-slavery Whig who joined the Republican Party after its formation, helped muster legal aid for John Brown after the raid on Harper's Ferry (1859). He won landslide election as Massachusetts Governor the following hear. As a Civil War Governor (1861-1865), he strongly supported President Lincoln and the Union cause, endorsed emancipation, and was instrumental in organizing the first black regiments for the Union Army, including the 54th Massachusetts Infantry immortalized in the movie Glory. In 2007 Deval Patrick, the first African-American Governor of Massachusetts, hung Andrew's picture in his office, calling him an inspiration. Glue stains on verso (light show through). Slightly soiled and shaded. Irregular edges.
