On February 27, 1860, Abraham Lincoln delivered a carefully written speech at Cooper Union in New York City. This print quotes the speech, which detailed Lincoln's views on stopping further expansion of slavery and likely helped secure his nomination for the presidency. The image is based on a carte-de-visite made that day by pioneering photographer Mathew B. Brady.
