If You’ve Got A Cool $900k Lying Around, The Document Which Started The Civil War Can Be Yours

In April of 1861, Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation blockading Southern ports, a decision that the Supreme Court later decided was the start of the Civil War. And the document that contains the proclamation itself, signed by Honest Abe, is being sold by the Ardmore-based Raab Collection.

For the basement-level price of $900,000 (there is no word if the price will drop for Black Friday) you can buy the document, presumably just to rub it in your friends’ faces that you have a piece of paper signed by Abraham Lincoln and they do not.
