Christmas Ornament 1999 The White House Historical Association
1999 Honoring Abraham Lincoln (1861-1865) - $24.99
No president has left a more enduring mark on the White House than Abraham Lincoln. He rose from the grassroots to guide his country through its greatest crisis, the Civil War, and under his leadership the broken Union was mended for all time. It is likely that had there been no Lincoln, there would be no White House today. This ornament features Lincoln’s portrait by George P. Healey. The Congress commissioned the posthumous portrait in oil in 1869. It hangs today over the fireplace in the State Dining Room of the White House. The frame shown in the ornament is adapted from a Civil War era ambrotype or tintype frame in the White House collection.
