Memento mori. [n. p., 1865] woodcut. 32 x 23 cm. Portrait of Lincoln within a black border containing 13 stars. Stern Broadside v.8, no. 40. Rare Books and Special Collections Division.

A somewhat inaccurate rendering of Lincoln's portrait, probably based on a photo taken by Anthony Berger, at Mathew Brady's gallery in Washington, D.C., on February 9, 1864. The quote is not of Lincoln's words.
