Confederate Patriotics: Early Designs thru Leaders continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
112 c Image10c Dark Blue, Hoyer & Ludwig (2b). Huge margins all around, deep rich color, tied by "LaGrange Ga. Jan. 27" circular datestamp on Breckinridge-Lane Campaign Three-Quarter Portrait cover to Richmond Va., S. Raynor of New York imprint, opening tears at left and small tear at top, missing backflap

EXTREMELY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING AND RARE USE OF AN 1860 BRECKINRIDGE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN COVER WITH THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT HOYER & LUDWIG PRINTING.

Breckinridge was a Kentucky lawyer and politician who served as Vice President of the U.S. from 1857-61. He came in third in the popular vote and second in the electoral vote, ahead of Bell and Douglas in the 1860 election. He instead became a senator, until he was expelled (and convicted of treason by the Senate) for joining the Confederate army. As an interesting side note, his cousin was Mary Todd Lincoln. This cover, depicting the pro-Southern Breckinridge, could be interpreted as a patriotic use. (Image)
