As such, it is a work authored before 1922, and is therefore in the public domain. A 1895 edition of the seal can be seen here. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I love the Chicago History Museum at 1601 N. Clark Street, The Chicago History Museum stands at the crossroads of America’s past and its future. See Lincoln Treasures, manuscripts of the Gettysburg Address and explore Lincoln’s views on slavery, the Union and his posthumous role as an American icon. 

I loved the Rahm Emanuel Birthday hat with the Chicago Flag
