Issachar Zacharie was not shy when it came to asking for one more testimonial - even if that one came from the President, not only in the very week of the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, Antietam; but on the very day, September 22, 1862, that Lincoln read his Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation to his Cabinet, for the first time, and announced his decision to issue it. Still, he made time to endorse Dr. Zacharie.
Autograph Manuscript Signed (“A. Lincoln”), as President, being a testimonial to Dr. Issachar Zacharie; 1 page, duodecimo, no place, September 22, 1862.
