Footnotes

  • The Bureau of Printing and Engraving had been set up in 1861 to enable the Union to raise money through the issue of banknotes during the Civil War, although it was not officially recognised under that title until 1874; taking over the production of postage stamps in 1894. The portrait is seemingly engraved from a photograph by Matthew Brady.
