Description

An authentic Civil War era broadside titled “FORWARD MARCH”.  This is an early war plea for volunteers with enticing bounties of extra money and land for their enlistment, or re-enlistment.  The offer is dated July 26, 1861, by order of Captain Richard Allen.  He was recruiting for Company I of the Union Army, at Camp Sheldon, Elyria Ohio.  The thin paper broadside appears to be glued to a piece of cardboard much like the backing of a cabinet card photograph, and is framed in a wonderful Civil War era wood frame, with gold and black highlights.
