Women’s Overseas Service League - Gettysburg Address Narrative



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Manufacturer: Charles Scribner & Sons, New York

Charles Scribner & Sons, New York, 1918 hard bound publication of The Perfect Tribute by Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews. Considered this author’s best work about Abraham Lincoln, this little forty-seven page book recounts the morning of November 18, 1863, when a special train drew out from Washington, carrying a most distinguished group of dignitaries. In addition to the U. S. Marine Band from the Navy Yard there were judges of the U. S. Supreme Court, governmental department heads, the general-in-chief of the army and his staff and members of the president’s cabinet. Oddly enough the most prominent personage in the group would have seemed out of place to one who would not recognize the towering awkward figure with the sad drawn face of Abraham Lincoln. The party was traveling to Gettysburg to consecrate the new national cemetery there. The authors narrative of the historic occasion is stirring in its simplicity and brevity while offering the reader a special insight not provided in the many other written accounts. Of interest to World War One and women’s history enthusiast will be that this volume bears the markings of the Women’s Overseas Service League library in Paris, France. The Women’s Overseas Service League was formed in the World War 1 era by and for women who served overseas with the Armed Forces. Library marked with natural age and minimal period wear, this offering remains tight and in pleasing condition with no tears, repairs or other condition issues.
