Old Abe and His Electors

Title: Old Abe and His Electors

Year: 1860

Creator: Bunker

Description: Abraham Lincoln is surrounded by a set of disreputable-looking contemporaries : “My dear friends and adopted fellow-citizens. I cannot express to you in words how deeply I am obliged to you for your generous votes. They have made me what I am. Without you I should have remained what I was – nothing. My emotions overpower me, as you can easily perceive. Be assured that I will do for you whatever LIES IN MY POWER.”
