What a great piece to frame and have on your wall! It is a rare original Civil War recruitment broadside. This one is from the state of Massachusetts and is dated from the heart of the Civil War. This one call on the "Come One! Come All! Eighty Recruits Wanted! / Strong inducements are now offered to all who enlist in any of the veteran regiments now in the field. You can have your choice of Regiments - Infantry, Cavalry or Artillery." The broadside goes on to list the bounty and pay schedules. It also states that the Recruiting Officers are the Selectmen of Amesbury and Salisbury (Massachusetts). The piece is the perfect size for framing. It measures 21-1/2 inches by 27-3/4ths inches in overall size and is printed on very light weight paper (almost "tissue" paper). We pictured it beside a standard sheet of paper to help show what a great size it is. The black ink look great on the white paper that has aged to a beautiful tan color. It has some humidity and water spots that give it character.
