We now have available several unique Lincoln related and Robert E. Lee relic displays that come with impeccable provenance.  The Lincoln displays consist of hair strands that belonged to Abraham Lincoln, Mary Lincoln, and William Seward. These hair strands originated from the estate of Mrs. Caroline Wright, wife of  Governor Joseph A. Wright of Indiana .   The Lincolns and the Wrights were friends and the hair locks these hair strands originated from were given to Mrs. Wright by the Lincolns just after Lincoln ’s 1865 Inauguration. Mrs. Wright collected hair locks from famous personalities and these were given to her by the Lincolns as a token of their friendship.  Also included in the “Assassination Display” is a relic from the bed sheet of Lincoln as he lay dying in the Peterson house that originated from the papers of Charles K. Tuckerman who was the 1st American Minister to Greece who was in Washington at the time of the assassination. Certificates of authenticity and provenance documents accompany every display. Each hair relic consists of several strands of hair.  The relics are covered with a 3X magnified cover to amplify the hair for better viewing. All displays are double matted in elegant suede with Florentine gold trim and are sold unframed.  Framed displays may be ordered at an additional charge.
