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.
