Boston Corbet War Date Signature



Boston Corbett was a Union soldier (1832–1894) who shot and killed President Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Rare and exceptionally bold ink signature, “Boston Corbett, Sergt Co. K. 16th N. Y. Cavalry,” on an off-white 5 x 2 slip. Handsomely mounted, double-matted, and framed with a biographical plaque and large image to an overall size of 22 x 14. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds passing through the signature and trivial show-through from adhesive remnants to left edge. Ready for the wall.
