1861 Runaway Slave Wanted Poster (18x21" framed)

1861 Runaway Slave Wanted Poster (18x21" framed)

Text is just chilling. "One Hundred Dollars Reward! Ranaway from the subscriber on the 13th inst., at Owen's Landing on the Mo. River (on my way to Texas) a negro man named NED, aged about 25 years, 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high, dark color with glossy skin, and his face inclined to be bumpy, will weigh about 140 lbs. He was finely dressesd, and is a genteel and proud negro…" Creasing and minimal tearing of the light stock poster only serve to add to its vintage appeal. A true piece of americana.
